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.
