Standard Textile is supporting World Wide Pressure Injury Prevention Day, a global awareness event organized by the National Pressure Injury Advisory Panel (NPIAP). World Wide Pressure Injury Prevention Day was first observed in 2013.
“Pressure injuries are one of the most common conditions experienced by patients around the world. A pressure injury may cause a great deal of pain and suffering, and it often presents a difficult challenge for the patient, the caregiver, and the health system,” said Norman Frankel, Executive Vice President, Standard Textile. “Pressure injuries are preventable, and we all have a role in stopping them from occurring.”
