Implementation of Turning Clocks for Pressure Ulcer Prevention and Management

The use of an individualized repositioning schedule is a recommended strategy for prevention and management of pressure ulcers. As individuals' needs differ, it is often a challenge to communicate specific repositioning schedules to care staff, which may result in inconsistent positioning. The literature suggests that using a visual cue, or diagram with body positions, may be a helpful reminder of resident positioning schedules (HSO, Leading Practices Library).
