Title : Proactive nursing: The keystone to pressure injury prevention


Nurses have become disengaged and are less likely to report changes in conditions, suggest appropriate treatments, or communicate with physicians and management when they do not feel they are being heard, or that their words to not matter.  This disengagement leads to increased house acquired pressure injuries, increased wound complications, and decreased patient satisfaction.

Audience Take Away Notes:

  • Attendees will be able to identify why nurses are burnt out and not willing to speak up with concerns or wound care recommendations and how to decrease burnout and an increase in reporting concerns and making wound care recommendations.
  • Attendees will be able to list how to improve nursing and management relationships, increase staff education, and empower nurses to take a proactive approach in wound care.
  • Attendees will be able to explain why an interdisciplinary approach to facility wound management and process improvements can decrease in house acquired pressure injuries.
