CLINICAL PRACTICE GUIDELINES
Preventing pressure ulcers includes conducting a structured risk assessment to identify those at risk, completing a comprehensive skin assessment and developing and implementing a plan for those at risk (NCG, 2014)
Nurse managers are ultimately responsible for staff completing and adhering to guidelines and to pass along pertinent information
Do nurse manager turnover rates influence adverse events on individuals during their inpatient stay?
According to the Office of the Inspector General, an adverse events happens to as many as one in seven patients (Warshawsky, Rayens, Stefaniak, & Rahman, 2013)
Adverse events that are considered "nurse sensitive" include falls and hospital-acquired pressure ulcers (Warshawsky et al., 2013)
Administration should recognize the importance of the nurse manager and attempt to prevent burnout and make for an easy transition and immediate replacement when a nurse manager submits resignation
