Hope for Hospital-acquired Pressure Injuries: Monitoring System Significantly Reduces Incidence

May 15, 2023

A pragmatic, open-label, randomized controlled trial at two ICUs at Stanford Medical Center – specializing in the care of cardiothoracic surgery patients or critically ill, medical, surgical and trauma patients – saw significant reduction in hospital-acquired pressure injuries with implementation of the LEAF◊ Patient Monitoring System.Publication summary covers:

  • Improvement in turn protocol adherence
  • Reduction in incidence of pressure injuries
  • Specifics on ventilator-dependent patients

The LEAF 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
