Purpose:

The purpose of this study is to test whether optimal patient turning, strictly every 2 hours with at least 15 minutes of tissue decompression, reduces the occurrence of hospital acquired pressure ulcers.


Study summary:

This single site, open label, two arm randomized control trial aims to evaluate whether optimal patient turning, strictly every 2 hours with at least 15 minutes of tissue decompression, reduces the occurrence of hospital acquired pressure ulcers. Optimal turning procedures will be obtained with the use of a patient monitoring system (Leaf Healthcare, Inc.) and compared to standard preventative care practices. Sensors were placed on all participants as they were admitted to ICU. A nurse's user dashboard was turned on for participants in the Optimal Turning Group, but was not turned on for participants in the Standard Care group.


Criteria:

Inclusion Criteria: - Adults (>18 years of age) - Admission to Intensive Care Unit Exclusion Criteria: - Children (<18 years of age) - Adhesive allergy - Physical limitation for sensor application
