Institutions that have deployed the LEAF Patient Monitoring System, a tool which allows caregivers to more effectively manage patient turning protocols, have experienced significant decreases in rates of pressure injuries. An analysis involving over 10,000 patients reveals the strong protective…
In this study, the use of wearable technology to cue patient turning reduced the number of hospital-acquired pressure injuries by 67% in the first 12 months. Additionally, 92% of nursing staff felt that the sensor program improved their unit communication.
Learn about the relationship between low adherence to turn protocols and the growing number of hospital-acquired pressure injuries (HAPIs) -- and how the LEAF System has been shown to help, both clinically and financially.
7M hours of data from 60K+ patients: LEAF Patient Monitoring System helps reduce the incidence of HAPIs
Wireless, wearable patient monitoring technology suggests the nation’s hospitals could avoid billions of dollars inpatient treatment costs by preventing hospital-acquired pressure injuries.
Hospital-acquired pressure injuries (HAPIs) continue to rise despite progress made in reducing all other hospital-acquired conditions (HACs). See how turn cueing helped a critical care unit at the Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville, Florida.
Risk of readmissions, mortality, and hospital-acquired conditions across hospital-acquired pressure injury (HAPI) stages in a US National Hospital Discharge database
This analysis of US hospital discharge records shows how preventing pressure injuries can help reduce unreimbursed treatment expenditures, reduce length of stay, minimize readmissions, prevent associated complications, and improve overall outcomes for their patients.
This four-month pilot study demonstrated a 94% reduction in the incidence of hospital-acquired pressure injuries through the use of wearable sensors to cue patient turns, along with an estimated ROI of more than $370,000.
Find out how an innovative wearable sensor system is changing the pressure injury prevention landscape.
See how one facility reduced hospital-acquired pressure injuries by 85% and saved $71,556 in non-reimbursable treatments costs in a single month.
