PMC Nursing Staff Techniques to become a VHA Leading Practice Blueprint®

The nursing staff at Pocono Medical Center (PMC) was recently recognized by VHA Inc. for the exceptional job they have done preventing pressure ulcers in patients. Pressure ulcers, most commonly known as bed sores, are red wounds that appear on the skin that could develop within 48 hours. Patients who are bed-resting require repositioning about every two hours to avoid them.

VHA recently visited PMC to collect and record clinical, process, and design facts about the pressure ulcers process in operation. They have compiled the list of comprehensive organizational best practices that support PMC’s newly blueprinted process which will be shared with other health care facilities.

“We are very proud of our entire nursing team for providing exceptional nursing care consistent with our mission. They are truly “world class” and I am proud that they are receiving this national recognition,” said Kathleen E. Kuck, President and CEO of Pocono Health System/Pocono Medical Center. “We look forward to working with VHA to help other health care organizations deliver the same quality of care that our community receives.”
