Estimated reduction in expenditure on hospital-acquired pressure injuries after an intervention for early identification and treatment.

Abstract An intervention designed to reduce numbers of hospital-acquired pressure injuries was delivered in Counties Manukau Health hospitals. An audit of a sample of patients was carried out to estimate the cost savings that would have been acquired across the district health board (DHB) due to a reduction in pressure injuries.

AB  - AIM: An intervention designed to reduce numbers of hospital-acquired pressure
      injuries was delivered in Counties Manukau Health hospitals. An audit of a sample
      of patients was carried out to estimate the cost savings that would have been
      acquired across the district health board (DHB) due to a reduction in pressure
      injuries. METHOD: The pressure injury intervention was delivered from 2011 to
      2015. A monthly prospective audit of patients with stages 1, 2, 3 and 4 pressure 
      injuries was carried out. This involved a random sample of five patients per ward
      in all hospitals in Counties Manukau DHB. RESULTS: It was found that the annual
      estimated cost of treating pressure injuries in hospital patients was
      NZ$12,290,484 less in 2015 than in 2011. CONCLUSION: Implementation of strategies
      for managing hospital-acquired pressure injuries can lead to potentially large
      financial savings for hospitals, as well as reducing the burden of managing this 
      difficult condition for patients and staff.
