Do you know which Hospital-Acquired Condition (HAC) was the ONLY one with increased rates between 2014 and 2017?
This HAC resulted in:
-A 6% incidence rate increase
-An increase of $1.7 Billion in costs
-An increase of 4,900 deaths

If you missed it, check out the recording of our webinar with Dr. Joyce Black that presents learners with a deeper understanding of the etiology and pathophysiology of Deep Tissue Pressure Injuries (DTPIs) and Pressure Injuries (PIs) as well as risk stratification and prevention techniques. In addition, we will bridge the gap to the impact of hospital-acquired pressure injuries (HAPIs), the importance of present on admission (POA) documentation, and relevant regulations.
Why just measure a wound when you can do so much more? Studies show that long-wave infrared thermography (LWIT) provides clinicians objective data on the status of the tissues below skin surface. Scout by WoundVision is the only device that provides both wound photography, measurement, and documentation WITH thermographic imaging!
Looking for ways to reduce your facility’s Hospital-Acquired Pressure Injury (HAPI) rate? Do you have an organizational initiative to improve quality metrics relating to Hospital-Acquired Conditions?
