Abstract

Hospital-acquired skin breakdown is closely associated with the quality of care, specifically nursing care, within a hospital. A multisite academic medical center, attempting to change practice following 2 significant episodes of reportable skin breakdown, mobilized resources to impact change. As a result of organization-wide nursing activities and implementation of an evidence-based practice protocol, improvement in prevalence data results indicates success.
