World Wide Pressure Injury Prevention Day

On November 17th, Decatur County Hospital joins hospitals across the country and globe in observing World Wide Pressure Injury Prevention Day. Decatur County Hospital’s special activities will recognize the contributions of the Staff and their role as goodwill ambassadors for the hospital.

Suzanne Cooner, CEO of Decatur County Hospital commented, “All of us at DCH are proud of the efforts put forth by all of our Staff as Pressure Injury Prevention only occurs when staff from all disciplines engage in prevention efforts.”

World Wide Pressure Injury Prevention Day was first observed in 2013 and is growing in recognition from many governing bodies across the world. It is most appropriate to set aside a special time to recognize the contributions of hospital personnel. The annual celebration of Worldwide Pressure Injury Prevention Day is sponsored by the National Pressure Ulcer Advisory Panel (www.npuap.org).
