The High Cost of Hospital Acquired Conditions
The cost of potentially preventable complications represents $88 billion in avoidable expenses for the United States healthcare system.1
Pressure injuries cost the US healthcare system an estimated $9.1-$11.6 billion annually according to the Agency for Healthcare Research & Quality (AHRQ).2
Patients who develop HACs are 20-33% more likely to incur costly readmissions to the hospital within 30 days of their discharge.3
Costs related to pressure injuries are greater than meets the eye and place a
substantial financial risk and burden on hospitals. Pressure injuries also have
a significant impact on patient satisfaction, morbidity, mortality, and quality
of life. By preventing pressure injuries, hospitals can save significant costs,
improve performance metrics, and improve overall outcomes for their patients.
