as with bony prominences. A study in the International Journal of Nursing Studies found that the prevalence of pressure ulcers ranges from 14.3 percent to 15.6 percent among patients in acute care settings and that pressure ulcers affect an estimated 27.7 percent of patients in long-term care facilities. (3) Additionally, according to the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ), pressure-ulcer related hospitalizations may add more than $10,000 to hospital costs, account for an additional four days in the hospital for a single individual and increase mortality rates. (4)

"Identification and proper care of at-risk or compromised skin is a very important part of pressure ulcer prevention," said Courtney H. Lyder, ND, GNP, FAAN, Dean and Professor, School of Nursing, Assistant Director, UCLA Health System, Executive Director, Patient Safety Institute, Professor of Public Health and Medicine, University of California, Los Angeles, CA. "The ConvaTec 3-step protocol for skin care, combined with the Solutions® Algorithms for Prevention program, provides clinicians with clear guidance backed by clinical data validating that these three easy steps can reduce the risk of pressure ulcers for patients."

ConvaTec will also feature Solutions® Program for Pressure Ulcer Prevention which provides education, tools and products to help reduce the risk of pressure ulcers. This includes information on prevention, guidelines and recommendations of appropriate skin care and prophylactic dressings to effectively help to prevent pressure ulcers. The program is designed to help facilities and caregivers improve outcomes, clinical efficiency and standardized care for patients. The full range of resources in the Solutions® Program for Pressure Ulcer Prevention program can be customized for training and use by clinicians, and will be available beginning in March 2011.
