Implementation of a Pressure Redistribution Mattress
Walden KE | Journal of Wound, Ostomy & Continence Nursing | 2008

In an effort to combat the rising cost of rental therapy products, The Jewish Hospital purchased and evaluated various mattresses from several manufacturers, observing patient comfort level and patient skin redness or breakdown over pressure points. Extensive assessment resulted in the hospital choosing the Accumax Quantum™ Convertible, a nonpowered redistribution surface, due to a 16% decrease in facility acquired pressure ulcers.  The new surface also led to a decrease in rental costs in the first year by $15,000 per month with a projected savings of $900,000 over a five year life.
