Trombley K(1), Brennan MR, Thomas L, Kline M. Author information: (1)North Shore University Hospital, Manhasset, NY 11030, USA. Comment in Am J Hosp Palliat Care. 2014 Feb;31(1):112-3. A group of palliative care nurses wanted to investigate the phenomenon they were witnessing in their end-of-life patients. There was a rapid onset of skin change characterized by bruising on various parts of the body in these patients. Traditionally they were described as pressure ulcers. However, the skin changes did not progress as typical pressure ulcers and warranted more investigation. DOI: 10.1177/1049909111432449 PMID: 22218917 [Indexed for MEDLINE]
