Pressure Ulcer Resources
Reducing Pressure Ulcers
Nursing homes that work with Delmarva Foundation (DF) to reduce HACs, such as pressure ulcers, will be well positioned to contribute to a 40% national reduction in HAC rates. Delmarva’s quality improvement staff includes nurses with experience working on wound care management in long-term care facilities in the District. They are available to provide on-site consulting regarding the best practices homes have used to document, manage, and prevent pressure ulcers among their residents. Additionally, DF staff train your staff in quality improvement techniques, share evidence-based tools and resources, and provide ongoing staff education.
