Abstract:
Poster Presentation: Pressure ulcer reduction is a National Patient Safety Goal and a requirement for Magnet Status. In order to manage the quarterly prevalence studies, a team of nurses was organized for each unit. This approach empowered the nurses to participate in the quality study and also become involved in prevention and treatment protocols for pressure ulcers. The "survey"; nurses have evolved into skin care nurse experts for each unit. This has been accomplished with a yearly education program associated with the studies, several independent wound care educational programs through out the year to which the nurses are encouraged to attend. The nurses are also involved in calculation of the data, development of a hemodynamic protocol for patients who can not be turned, and providing in-services to staff on their particular units. Presently the skin care nurses are assembling a skin care task force to combine their energies to provide ongoing performance improvement hospital wide. References: Cuddigan J, Ayello E, Sussman, D.
