Pressure-induced Injuries (Nursing)

by Samantha Rhea, MSN, RN

Pressure-induced injuries have multiple causes. As a nurse, you’ll want to focus on preventable pressure-induced injuries that occur as a result of a patient receiving care. In fact, preventing these injuries is a top priority of healthcare systems.

This course contains crucial information for nurses to know. When a patient develops a pressure injury while receiving care, the facility that is providing that care becomes responsible for the associated costs and outcomes.

In this course, you’ll learn what the risk factors of pressure-induced injuries are and how they commonly occur in hospitalized patients. You’ll learn how to stage the injuries and, most importantly, how to prevent them.
