National Pressure Injury Prevention Day!11/19/2020
Thursday Nov. 19th is World Wide Pressure Injury Prevention Day! Crestview Center takes time to acknowledge this special day. The clinical team at Crestview Center are constantly putting interventions in place to prevent pressure injuries. The skin is the largest organ in the body and something as simple as frequent repositioning can help reduce pressure injuries. Crestview proudly celebrates their 1.99% rate of in house acquired pressure ulcers for the month of October. Many skilled nursing facilities struggle to achieve a rate below 2%. Crestview's skilled clinical team performs wound care rounds weekly, as well as a certified wound care Nurse Practitioner who rounds every Friday. Help celebrate National Pressure Injury Prevention Day with us!
