Trends in Heel Ulcer Incidence

In a recent micro survey conducted by 3S Consulting Group and hosted within the WOC Skin Health Weekly digital publication, approximately 74% of respondents reported that the average incidence of heel pressure ulcers within their facility is ≤ 10%.

The majority of respondents reported that the incidence of heel pressure ulcers in their facility has decreased within the past year. This is likely due to changes in CMS and a rising emphasis on prevention.
