Turning and positioning systems

Positioning your patients to prevent pressure ulcers

The focus on pressure ulcer (PU) prevention is increasing in hospitals worldwide. That’s good news for patients – less unnecessary suffering. And for society in general – saving on unnecessary costs and reducing pressure on hospital beds and caregiver time. You and your team can make a difference without having to reinvent the wheel. International guidelines and clinical organizations have published recommendations for risk inclusion criteria and sustainable protocols1.

What could your organization achieve? Imagine less patient suffering and avoiding unnecessary costs.

Clinicians around the world agree that repositioning a patient effectively is the cornerstones of pressure ulcer (PU) prevention1. We can help your team achieve a successful prevention program by providing solutions for turning and positioning patients. These interventions – in conjunction with our Mepilex® Border Sacrum and Heel foam dressings and other standard PU prevention measures – can help your team reduce the occurrence of PU in your hospital.
