Avoidable or unavoidable pressure injury: Why is it so hard to do the right thing?

Duration: 42 minutes

Objectives: Pressure injuries (PrI) are the fastest rising hospital-acquired condition that cost hospitals more than falls, surgical site infections, CAUTIs, CLABSIs and ventilator-associated pneumonias combined. While most pressure injuries are avoidable, some do meet the definition of unavoidable pressure injury. This presentation discusses the legal burden of pressure injuries, what constitutes an unavoidable PrI and how to reduce litigation risk for your facility.
