Scheduling the Survey

Frequent pressure injury surveys allow hospitals to:

  • rapidly implement corrective measures

The Survey must be conducted on all participating units during one calendar day avoid double counting patients that are transferred between units.

  • Each hospital can choose the calendar day during the month they will collect the pressure injury data
  • All participating units within each hospital must complete the pressure injury survey on the chosen calendar day
