Aim: To explore the experience and perception of pressure ulcers in a group of nurses caring for older patients. Design: A qualitative study based on interviews with (N = 6) nurses working with older patients. Method: A qualitative approach was applied using thematic analysis influenced by Braun and Clarke. Results: The findings comprised one main theme “Prevention of pressure ulcers is important” and four sub-themes “Nursing resources on the ward,” “Basic nursing skills—lift the duvet,” “Introduction of new nurses on the ward—bedside teaching” and “Missing articulation of pressure ulcers.” Bedside teaching and experienced nurses may create a culture on the ward where basic nursing skills and observations are articulated.
