Save Our Skin
The MHA Save Our Skin award is presented to Minnesota
hospital health care teams who demonstrate their commitment to keeping
patients’ skin safe by preventing a pressure ulcer/injury in a patient who
likely would have developed one — due to their high-risk status — if not for
the efforts of the team. The majority of serious pressure ulcers/injuries
reported in Minnesota each year occur in patients who are medically complex and
have lengthy hospital stays.
Save Our Skin award nominations are accepted throughout the
year. A pin, letter and certificate of recognition from MHA are distributed
quarterly to all nominees.
