Pressure Ulcer Prevention
Our track record in preventing and managing pressure ulcers, more commonly known as bedsores, is a long-standing one that has been recognized and replicated across the country. We have been leaders in this area and were honored with the Joint Commission's prestigious Ernest A. Codman Award for our practice and exceptional results.
Our approach has been aggressive with wound care specialists housed at each of our facilities to monitor your care, and state of the art hospital beds and equipment that are meant to keep you comfortable and keep you safe. Preventing pressure ulcers is a national healthcare concern. Its one of the Joint Commission's National Patient Safety Goals and a major effort in the Institute for Health Care Improvement’s Save 5 Million Lives Campaign. For these reasons, it’s our top priority to make certain that you receive the best possible care.
