Abstract

Objective: To evaluate nurses' knowledge about the applicability of the scale for assessing the risk of injuries resulting from surgical positioning in adult patients. Methodology: Exploratory research focusing on a qualitative approach. The selection of participants occurred intentionally using the snow ball methodology, where the initial participants nominated new participants. Data analysis followed the steps of organization, exploration and interpretation of the collected material. Results: The collection was carried out with 23 nurses, their ages ranged from 28 to 67 years old, in relation to gender, 20 were female and three were male. The time of professional training ranged from five months to 43 years and the time of professional activity ranged from four months to 43 years. Of the 23 nurses, 16 had specialization in surgical services, 14 nurses had employment in a private hospital, of which 11 knew the ELPO scale and of these, six applied the ELPO scale, three used the Braden scale and one the Munro. Conclusion: The ELPO scale still needs to be widely disseminated and put into practice by institutions, in order to add to the safe surgery checklist, which in turn has already been implemented in order to ensure safe surgery for the patient.
