When pressure injury prevention plans fail:

  • Patients suffer pain and even death. There are about 60,000 deaths each year directly related to pressure ulcers.
  •  The financial loss is $9.1-11.6 billion per year in the United States.
    There are more than 17,000 pressure ulcer lawsuits filed annually with an average settlement cost of $250,000
  • Cost of individual patient care ranges from $20,900 to $151,700 per pressure ulcer. Medicare estimated in 2007 that each pressure ulcer added $43,180 in costs to a hospital stay
  • The hospital loses money since there is no reimbursement for Stage 3 or 4 pressure ulcers that are hospital acquired. 
  • Your hospital’s reputation is damaged. What is your quality rating? Are you reaching quality targets? What’s on the internet? Check your quality status. Go to Health Grades and Compare Hospitals
