Pressure ulcers cost the healthcare systems millions of dollars every year. The current literature indicates that a multi-modal approach must be used in order to provide the best prevention of pressure ulcers. The use of small body movements is a simple intervention that could be utilized in addition to the regularly used prevention methods. A retrospective data analysis was used to assess the possible need for an additional pressure ulcer prevention intervention and the possible effectiveness it may have had on the intensive care patient population. Data was collected 60 days prior to the implementation of the new intervention in place and the data was assessed to see if pressure ulcers development decreases with an additional intervention. The retrospective data was collected by the clinical nurse specialist from the pressure ulcer prevention team. That data was cleared of any identifying information and then forwarded to the primary investigator. Unfortunately, not enough data was able to be collected in order to indicate if the proposed question was accurate.
