A 6-month pilot study at this Magnet-recognized hospital implemented a system that combined patient monitoring technology with turn alerts to improve patient repositioning adherence.

The LEAF◊ Patient Monitoring System offers:

  • Personalized care for each patient
  • Digital turn reminders (in room and at the nurses’ station)
  • Confirmation that patient turns have sufficiently offloaded pressure
  • Automatically generated reports that can be used for root cause analysis

The facility also:

  • Took advantage of staff training provided by Smith+Nephew for safe and effective repositioning
  • Conducted baseline turn protocol adherence study before pilot
  • Established goal and stretch goal for reduction in pressure injury incidence

See how the LEAF System helped this hospital exceed their stretch goal and save $389K net in 6 months.
