INDUSTRY FACTS: Hospital Acquired Pressure Ulcers (HAPU's) cost the U.S. health care industry more than $2 billion annually and are now considered a "Medical Never Event" by Medicaid & Medicare. With the average cost of treatment approaching $35,000 per case, providers must improve the quality of patient outcomes while minimizing their potential liability.
