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, Hill-Rom 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 Hill-Rom representative.  You can contact Customer Service at 800-445-3730, option 1 to locate the sales representative in your area.
