Pressure Injuries Webinar (HRET HIIN) | It Takes Two to Tango: Leadership and Front Lines Unite to Fight HAPI

July 17, 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Event Navigation

What does it take to eliminate the pain and suffering that comes from hospital-acquired pressure injuries (HAPI)? It takes two — leadership who builds an infrastructure that supports optimal delivery of care, and front-line nurses who are equipped to deliver that optimal bedside care. Learn how two HIIN hospitals accelerated HAPI improvement by taking this two-pronged approach of structure and process. Leadership providing structure via appropriate equipment, supplies and education, and front-line staff delivering effective processes that focus on prevention and early identification of injuries.

The webinar will feature Mississippi Baptist Hospital’s use of their shared governance structure to build nursing and organizational skill in preventing skin injuries. We will also learn from a Texas hospital, Valley Baptist Medical Center, through a wound care specialist’s journey from a 20% HAPI rate to becoming a HIIN HAPI bright spot through the work of his “skin guardians.”

If your organization has opportunity to improve in preventing pressure injuries invite your hospital’s nursing leadership and skin care champions to listen to this event as a team and learn how you can take your next steps to improve.
