Preventing Pressure Ulcers

Abstract

Many risks and complications are associated with pressure ulcers. They prolong patient stays, take up staff time, and often demand thousands of dollars of unreimbursable treatment. Yet, the entire problem is preventable. Pressure Ulcers: Your Role in Prevention and Treatment is a new booklet that takes a comprehensive view of the problem and offers concrete solutions. The booklet is designed to enhance your employees' interpersonal, self-improvement, and patient care skills.

The booklet can raise staff awareness of pressure ulcer risks and helps them recognize, evaluate, and act on potential problems. Medically accurate illustrations show the stages of pressure ulcer development, and straightforward text explains treatment options.

The booklet can enhance prevention training; reduce costs associated with treatment; improve patient and family satisfaction; educate family caregivers in home care situations; and demonstrate a commitment to quality patient care.

Orders of 300 or more will also receive a turning schedule chart and a study review quiz.
