How do I select the right support surface for patients at risk for a pressure ulcer?

Surface selection should be based on patient risk factors for moisture and mobility. To help you choose the right surface for the right patient, Hillrom offers an interactive surface selection algorithm, based on consensus evidence from a JWOCN publication, which shows which beds fit under which JWOCN categories.  To access the algorithm, please contact a Hillrom representative.  You can contact Customer Service at 800-445-3730, option 1 to locate the sales representative in your area.
