Quality Improvement Change Project

For my finalized proposal for the course project, I chose to focus on hospice care due to my current experience caring for hospice patients and working to assess their needs. The quality improvement measure I would like to work on is the reduction of the number of pressure injuries on contracted, bed bound, terminally-ill hospice patients. Bed sores are very common among patients living in hospice settings. Pressure ulcers occur in more than 40 percent of hospice patients (VITAS, 2021). Risk assessment and proper documentation is a large part of preventing bed sores. Upon admission risk assessment is crucial and must include a full body check (VITAS, 2021). Risk factors for bed sores can very from patient to patient, so performing evaluations more frequently and efficiently can help assess how to treat each patient and best prevent pressure injuries. This will be done working with the physician and head nurse in my department.
