With CMS no longer reimbursing acute care facilities for conditions it considers preventable, your facility must continue to prevent hospital-acquired pressure ulcers and catheter-associated UTIs at all costs. During this 1-hour audio session, wound and continence care expert Dorothy Doughty will give you critical tools to keep accurate documentation that protects you, as well as the savvy to identify at-risk patients right away and to keep prevent pressure ulcers and CAUTI from developing.
Have additional questions? You have the floor with the speaker during an interactive Q&A.
Who should attend? Wound care nurses, staff nurses, and nurse administrators in acute care facility settings.
