Setting: NICU and well‐baby units in 27 hospitals located throughout the United States. Ostomy/Wound Management; 45: 2, 20-34. The Neonatal Skin Risk Assessment Scale could ensure the efficient and effective allocation of limited preventive resources, support clinical and management decisions, allow risk‐adjusted cases in epidemiological studies, facilitate the development of risk assessment protocols and serve as evidence in litigation cases. The Neonatal Skin Risk Assessment Scale (NSRAS) was piloted with 32 neonates. The Neonatal Skin Risk Assessment Scale, first published in 1997, was developed by Huffines and Logsdon 35 specifically for the neonatal population (gestational age 26–40 weeks) at risk of injury and is based off of the Braden scale.
