Patient Safety Tool: 'Turn Clock' Poster to Help Prevent Pressure Ulcers

Information & Quality Healthcare, a not-for-profit corporation serving as the federally designated quality improvement organization for Mississippi, provides a free, downloadable poster to remind staff when to turn a patient to help prevent the development of pressure ulcers.

 

The "Turn Clock" Flyer is to be placed on a patient door to alert staff that the patient has been identified as being at high risk for developing pressure ulcers and emphasizes the key treatment component of turning the patient every two hours.
