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…
This session from 2022 AONL Conference reviews the latest data related to hospital‐acquired pressure injuries and evidence‐based prevention strategies within the AONL nurse leader competency framework.
“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.
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.
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.
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.
