Stage II Pressure Ulcer Rate
Moderate pressure ulcer caused by hospitalization. (A lower percentage is better)
Stage III or greater Pressure Ulcer Rate
Severe pressure ulcer caused by hospitalization. (A lower percentage is better)
Why is this important?
Pressure ulcers can be caused by prolonged immobility during hospitalization. These numbers reflect the work we do and the high quality care we strive to provide to prevent pressure ulcers during a hospitalization.
