HAC Roundtable: Examples of the Awareness of Risk

Date: Tuesday, January 8, 2013

Time: 12:00 AM ET

During this session, NSN Improvement Coach Ed Mendez facilitated a roundtable discussion around what HAC reduction teams are learning from their tests of change and addressed key drivers.

The select drivers by condition for this session were:

  • HAPU: Patient / Staff / Family Awareness of Risk (i.e., develop documentation tools to prompt daily skin inspections)
  • Falls: Patient / Staff / Family Awareness of Fall Risk (i.e., visual/audible cues)

Los Angeles County + University of Southern California Healthcare Network’s pressure ulcer team also shared how they reduced pressure ulcers by more than 70 percent between 2010 and 2012.
