Turn protocol adherence reaches 99%, zero pressure injuries in pilot with patient monitoring system

Cover Image

See the summary of a pilot study covering more than 7,000 hours of data on how a patient monitoring system improved adherence to patient turning protocol for pressure injury prevention.

  • Baseline phase: 75 patients over 4,322 hours
  • Post-intervention phase: 63 patients over 3,532 hours
  • 99% turn protocol adherence
  • Zero pressure injuries during pilot

The LEAF◊ Patient Monitoring System combines wearable patient sensors with a user interface, offering:

  • 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
