And it's easy to see why: Pressure injuries affect patients in all healthcare settings, but the highest incidence is in acute care settings. The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) reported that 2.5 million hospital patients develop a pressure injury each year, and 60,000 patients die as a direct result of their wounds.
And to make matters worse, the coronavirus pandemic is increasing the number and severity of patients with PIs. Moderate to severe coronavirus-related infections can cause significant debility, and recovery is often slow, creating an unfortunate environment for pressure injury development among at-risk patients.
