Do Healthcare Systems Promote the Prevention of Pressure Ulcers?

This whitepaper is a call to action - a challenge - to prevent pressure ulcers, a painful and life-taking condition that is largely preventable - when addressed systemically and collectively holds the promise of compelling and sustaining pressure ulcer incidence near zero.
