This HIIN and hospital Pacing Event will revisit the HIIN Program’s ongoing need to address pressure injuries. Joyce Black, PhD, RN, CWCN, FAAN, University of Nebraska Medical Center, will review the important role of conducting root cause analysis (RCA) to identify and address gaps. In addition, the session will explore work at Natchitoches Regional Medical Center to address its identified gap: a lack of focus on nutrition in wound care. The hospital’s champion for this work, Frank Aviles, Jr., PT, CWS, FACCWS, CLT, will discuss the identified need, the steps taken to address it, the outcomes achieved, and observed keys to success.
