All hospital acquired pressure injury care expences are not covered by the insurance. Hence pressure injuires in critical care patients can creat a big loss of revenue to the organisation and can compromise patient safety. Understanding pressure injuries, stages and prevention methods can reduce this burden of loss to the organiosation. A proper guidline implementation and practices can change this situation. The multidisciplinary rounds on these patients can help to reduce the incidents and will help to manage the situation.
