Executive summary

With reimbursement, reputation, and patient safety now all on the line, the collective energy and commitment to preventing hospital-acquired conditions has never been higher. Nonetheless, nursing leaders across the country continue to struggle to leverage a plethora of evidence-based guidelines and protocols to achieve lasting change, rather than impressive early results that all too often dissipate with the completion of the latest campaign.

With a special focus on preventing pressure ulcers and patient falls, this presentation offers a strategic framework for focusing nursing energies, best practices for hardwiring key clinical interventions, and the business case for investment in such a targeted approach.
