Pressure Injury Concerns
One of the biggest challenges hospitals face today is preventing patients from developing pressure injuries while undergoing inpatient hospital treatments for other medical issues. An increasing reason for readmission is for hospital-acquired pressure injuries (HAPI).
In 2008 the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) published a policy that they would no longer reimburse hospitals for the cost of treating HAPI.
This policy transfers the treatments cost back to the healthcare providers.
