Pressure Ulcer Improvement

In response to challenges faced by providers in care transitions, GNYHA and its long term care affiliate, the Continuing Care Leadership Coalition (CCLC), launched a number of initiatives to facilitate the adoption of a more standardized approach to assessing, managing, documenting, and treating pressure ulcers. GNYHA and CCLC worked with 18 hospitals and 10 long term care organizations to develop and implement a standardized, cross-setting communication tool to track and monitor patients with pressure ulcers who are transferred between facilities. The resulting toolkit and resources are available for GNYHA and CCLC member facilities’ use.
