El Camino Hospital and Leaf Healthcare Piloting a Pressure Ulcer Prevention Program Using Innovative Patient Monitoring Technology
Date:11/21/2013

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Nov. 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- To address the need for improved pressure ulcer prevention and treatments, El Camino Hospital today announced their participation in a pilot program of the Leaf Patient Monitor, a system that wirelessly monitors in real-time, the position, movement and activity of patients susceptible to pressure ulcers (bed sores) and alerts staff when that movement deviates from individual turn-management protocols set by healthcare providers.

"Participating in this pilot program will allow us to couple our process and protocols with this innovative monitoring technology to help our staff more effectively manage our most at-risk patients."
