Summary from 4/27 Pacing Event: What’s Working in Pressure Injury Prevention

Pressure injury prevention continues to be an area in which further work is required across HIINs and hospitals. This Pacing Event examined strategies used within and across hospitals to prevent pressure injuries and to look beyond the run chart to identify opportunities for continued improvement. The session included evidence-based and emerging strategies that HIINs and hospitals can apply in their work. Specifically, this session featured presentations from:

  • Leaders from the NYSPFP HIIN, who discussed elements of their pressure injury prevention efforts over the past several years, including a review of existing evidence, how they apply their HIIN-level guiding principles to their pressure injury  work, their experiences in keeping hospitals energized, and their results;
  • Nursing leaders from the Henry Ford Hospital (Great Lakes HIIN), who discussed their strategies, keys to success, and results in preventing pressure ulcers through their nurse-led efforts; and
  • Charisse Coulombe, from the HRET HIIN, who shared some emerging strategies using claims data to drive pressure injury reductions.
