This presentation will review the value of pressure ulcer prevention in hospitals based on evidence from several economic studies. It will also look at how the field has transformed with the onset of electronic health records, which can both support and deteriorate WOC Nurses efforts to improve preventive practices. Finally, the session will go over new findings from the field that WOC Nurses can consider for addition to existing quality improvement programs to reduce pressure ulcer rates.
