injuries cost $9.1-$11.6 billion per year in the U.S., and the cost of individual patient care ranges from
$20,900 to $151,700 per pressure injury. Additionally, more than 17,000 lawsuits are related to pressure
injuries annually. It is the second most common claim after wrongful death and has more claims than falls or
emotional distress. About 60,000 patients die as a direct result of a pressure injuries each year. Aggressive
pressure injury prevention, along with accurate wound assessment and documentation, are a top priority for
staff and facilities alike, to implement a foundation for any wound prevention and treatment program.
