Course Details


The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services report that pressure injuries (PIs) affect millions of patients each year, with incidence rates ranging from 2.2% to 23.9% in long-term care organizations. PIs occur as a result of intense or prolonged pressure in combination with shear and are affected by excessive heat and moisture, poor nutrition and blood circulation, chronic illness, and soft-tissue conditions (for example, an abrasion or sprain). This article describes how a healthcare team followed the evidence to successfully enhance their Pressure Injury Prevention program to improve outcomes for at-risk patients at their facility.

Key Learning Outcomes:

  1. Describe strategies for preventing pressure injuries (PIs) in long-term care (LTC).
  2. Discuss how to implement a project designed to prevent PIs in LTC.
