Patient Safety Tool: Pressure Ulcer Prevention Self-Assessment

The Greater New York Hospital Association, a trade association comprising hospitals in New York, New Jersey, Connecticut and Rhode Island, offers a free organizational assessment of a pressure ulcer prevention and management program.

The assessment is part of the Gold Success Through Assessment, Management and Prevention Program developed by the New York Department of Health, GNYHA, the Continuing Care Leadership Coalition and the Healthcare Association of New York State, among others.  


The Gold STAMP Program to Reduce Pressure Ulcers designed the assessment to help organizations evaluate their pressure ulcer program and identify areas for improvement.
