[Webinar] Defending Pressure Injury Claims through Innovative Wearable Sensor Technology – May 25th, 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm EDT | Goldberg Segalla

May 25th, 2022

12:00 PM – 1:00 PM EDT

Presenters Jonathan Berkowitz of Goldberg Segalla, LLP and Annemari Cooley of Smith & Nephew will explain why current medical standards regarding “unavoidable” skin breakdown and Federal quality of care regulations impose a nearly-insurmountable burden upon healthcare facilities faced with pressure injury litigation. The most common pathway to litigation is turning and repositioning documentation. Innovative patient-wearable technology has been shown to increase compliance with turning protocols, reduce facility-acquired pressure injuries and to document repositioning events automatically to help facilities prove that the standard of care was met.


Senior health care providers, hospital risk managers, insurance claims and underwriting personnel, insurance brokers servicing senior care providers and acute care hospitals.


• Why the current state of peer-reviewed medical literature and Federal regulations pose a relatively impossible-to-satisfy burden upon long-term care providers seeking to demonstrate that pressure injuries giving rise to litigation are legally and clinically “unavoidable”

• Why wearable sensor technology and its automated documentation capabilities may allow providers to better demonstrate the provision of appropriate turning and repositioning to prevent pressure injury formation and deterioration

• Why senior care providers may ultimately improve upon facility-wide quality of care by adopting wearable sensor technology for high-risk pressure injury residents
