Join us as Master of Science in Applied Life Sciences student Adnan Attla-Saied speaks about “HAPI Days: a Pressure Injury Reduction Initiative.”

Hospital Acquired Pressure Injuries (HAPI’s) are a “never-event” with significant economic and reputational costs for hospitals, as well as serious consequences for patient outcomes. Excessive linen and diaper use contribute to the formation of HAPI’s through localized increases in temperature and pressure that result in skin breakdown. Through proper patient turning procedures, best practices in linen and diaper use, appropriate skin set ordering, and consistent documentation, HAPI’s have been reduced to an incidence of 0% in the definitive step-down unit. As this project is expanded to other units in St. Joseph Hospital, resistance to change will be a primary issue. As such, a microteaching approach based on adult learning theory will be implemented to bring best practices re-education to the point of clinical practice.Hospital Acquired Pressure Injuries (HAPI’s) are a “never-event” with significant economic and reputational costs for hospitals, as well as serious consequences for patient outcomes.
