Pressure Injury Prevention - A Standardized Nursing Process

Project Description: The incidence of facility acquired pressure injury(FA-PU) remains a concern for our patients and the organization quality outcomes. In an effort to reduce 4ESICU FA-PU incidences and rates, a PI Prevention Process was developed. This process was developed from extensive drill down on every FA-PI on 4ESICU. The PI process is an effort to standardize the nursing approach to assessment, documentation, treatment and prevention of FA-PIs.
