    I’m aware of the recent articel on here that talked about reducing pressure ulcers – in particular, incidence.  Have any of you done a project on this and are you willin gto share some outcomes?

      You might want to look up papers by Steven Reger.  He has done a lot of work on pressure ulcers with the focus being on their reduction and elimination.  He has papers on this subject in some of the medical journals.

    One of our hospitals completed a  DMAIC project on Reducing Pressure Ulcer Incidence with positive outcomes. Feel free to contact me with questions.
