Hospital-acquired Pressure Injuries
According to a recent U.S. study, 4-8 percent of all inpatients will develop hospital-acquired pressure injuries. In addition to pain and the risk for serious infections, pressure injuries result in increased length of stay, readmissions and $2.41 billion in excess healthcare costs. The attached Safety Action Bundle provides a collection of the best evidenced based practices and tools to help healthcare organizations reduce the occurrence of these events.
Our goal is to reduce stage 3, 4 and unstageable pressure injuries by 20% by September 27, 2017.
