Challenge 24: Prevention of Skin Breakdown

The changes in medications, diet, and mobility inherent in hospitalization can leave patients susceptible to skin breakdown and pressure ulcers. If not treated appropriately, these wounds can escalate into other complications such as, but not limited to, infections or sepsis. Our APSS Blueprints provide healthcare organizations with practical, evidence-based checklists and protocols to establish a consistent monitoring standard for all patients.
