Safe Skin® Program

Get your patients on the right surface at the right time to prevent pressure ulcers.

The Hill-Rom® Safe Skin® program reflects our commitment to the prevention and treatment of pressure ulcers. Our partnership with the WOCN® Society led to the first evidence and consensus-based support surface algorithm, which is the core of our program. Our expert clinicians work with you to apply evidence-based tools to enhance the outcomes for your patient population and strengthen the financial position of your organization.

Participation is free to facilities and includes a customized, detailed report including prevalence and facility-acquired prevalence benchmarks.
