A panel of clinical experts at ANPD Annual Convention shares innovative ways to support nurses along their professional journey, cultivate leaders, and build resiliency.
Nurse leaders strive to ensure nurses—from newly licensed to experienced—have the resources and support to excel in their practice. Yet, 50% of novice nurses commit errors in care and nurse turnover rates are rising, especially among new RNs (23.9%) who often lack professional skills, competence, and engagement to deliver optimal patient care.

Reducing pressure injury incidence in critical care with turn cueing
Smith and Nephew
October 11, 2021
Hospital-acquired pressure injuries (HAPIs) continue to rise despite progress made in reducing all other hospital-acquired conditions (HACs). According the Agency of Healthcare Research and Quality, HAPIs are associated with nearly half of the nation’s annual HAC-related deaths and cost our health system more than surgical site infections, falls, catheter-associated urinary tract infections, deep vein thrombosis, ventilator-acquired pneumonia, Clostridium difficile infections, and central line–associated bloodstream infections combined. New research also reveals a strong correlation between HAPIs and increased risk of falls, development of other HACs, and hospital re-admissions.
Regular patient turning and repositioning are cornerstones of any pressure injury prevention program, yet research shows that on average about half of patients are not turned according to their protocols. The latest 2019 international clinical practice guideline for prevention and treatment of pressure injuries includes several recommended strategies to improve patient turning and repositioning. One of the recommendations is to implement repositioning reminder strategies—such as wearable patient sensors—to promote adherence to repositioning regimens.
This case study presentation will review the objectives and outcomes from a HAPI-prevention initiative in critical care at the Mayo Clinic, Jacksonville, Florida that implemented a wearable sensor turn cueing system to improve turn protocol adherence and reduce hospital-acquired pressure injuries.
