High Yields from a Pressure Ulcer Prevention Program - Yuma Regional Medical Center

The implementation of a new bed system that provides: a pressure redistribution surface; a bed exit system; and powered patient transport in their bed, has helped improve clinical outcomes and reduced cost. The program changes following the purchase of VersaCare A.I.R.® bed systems have been estimated to save the Yuma Regional Medical Center facility greater than $200,000 per year. The benefits that were achieved above involved a mandatory systematic application of the process improvement program designed to utilize the bed features.
