WOCN Conference 2018

W400 - Deep Tissue Injury: The Future is in Your Hands

Jun 5, 2018 9:50am ‐ Jun 5, 2018 10:50am

Standard: $5.00


At this 620 bed level 1 trauma center, we found that although we had a robust Pressure ulcer/injury prevention program we continued to have reportable pressure ulcer/injuries. Within this session we will share the data that was collected and analyzed over 5 years, in order to find the patient related risk factors in the development of Deep Tissue Injuries in the ICU and how these risk factors compare to the average ICU patient within this facility.

We will further show how we are building on this science while staying focused on Nursing Quality Indicators.

Learning Objective:

  • At the end of this session, the learners will identify areas in which to collect outcomes data in order to identify trends in patients with pressure ulcer/injuries
