Improving turning compliance and reducing pressure injuries in the acutely ill patient

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.

“Turning” to Technology: Reducing Hospital Acquired Pressure Injuries in Critical Care with Visual Turn Cueing

This study shows how investing in technology such as the LEAF Patient Monitoring System can transform nursing team adherence with turning protocols, strengthen patient outcomes and improve a nursing-sensitive metric.

Documentation of patient repositioning events: Comparison of Electronic Medical Record documentation and accelerometer-based sensors

This study of turning documentation methods showed how wearable sensors, which record turning automatically, resulted in documentation that was 9x more frequent than that of manual EHR flowsheets.

Using turn cueing technology to reduce HAPIs in LTACH: Pilot results

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.
