Enhance Patient Satisfaction
Patients benefit from receiving better care with a greatly reduced likelihood of developing a
pressure injury or other medical complications associated with immobility. Patient length of
stay is reduced and pain and suffering associated with pressure injuries avoided. Patients and
family members recognize the benefits and appreciate the hospital's focus on high-quality
Leaf reduces costs to the hospital. It pays for itself and is financially net positive from day
one. The avoided unreimbursed cost associated with pressure injuries alone more than cover
the cost of the sensors. Leaf provides all equipment needed and installs the system, at no
cost to the hospital, reducing the financial risk and streamlining the financial approval
By improving patient outcomes and reducing "never events" Leaf improves hospital
performance metrics. Leaf also serves as a demonstration to the community that the hospital
uses the most up-to-date, state of the art equipment and technology to protect patients during
Increase Staff Efficiency
Leaf is easy to use. The nurse simply applies a small light-weight sensor on the patient's
chest and it automatically begins to monitor position and activity, displaying status at the
nursing station monitor. Patient turn management is made both easy and more efficient.
Patient self-turning is monitored, unnecessary turns are avoided and work load on the nursing
staff reduced. The Leaf system is also capable of automatically documenting position/mobility
metrics in the EMR, thereby off-loading a documentation burden.
Leaf optimizes care delivery and ensures patients are turned both efficiently and effectively.
Automated reports at the patient, unit, and facility level provide actionable data to identify
gaps in care and make sustaining high performance with prescribed mobility programs easier.
Daily Leaf reports help administrators sustain optimization of mobility protocols, identify
training opportunities, track performance, and have even been used to optimize staffing
Leaf installs all the equipment at the hospital, requiring little effort by IT. Leaf also maintains
the system 24/7 and installs all software upgrades as they become available. The self-monitoring wireless system uses redundant antennas to achieve near 100% availability. Any
issues are reported directly to Leaf, enabling remote fixes without impacting system
performance or availability.
Leaf uses a separate wireless network that has been proven by spectrum analysis in
numerous installations to have zero impact on other hospital systems. Leaf System data is
well protected meeting all HIPPA requirements. If desired, the system can be integrated with
existing ADT and EMR systems. Leaf has been scrutinized by and passed IT security
clearances at many major healthcare systems across the USA.
