Acute Care Support Surfaces
Medline’s comprehensive approach to pressure redistribution begins the moment a patient enters the hospital. Our full line of support surface products uses the most advanced pressure redistribution features with best-in-class technology to minimize the risk of facility-acquired pressure ulcers.
Mattress Assessment Program
Pressure ulcers are less costly to prevent than treat.1 Regularly repositioning patients and installing pressure redistribution mattresses are two practices that can help reduce the risk of pressure ulcers; however, over time, mattresses lose their effectiveness.
Medline’s Mattress Assessment Program can help you evaluate your support surfaces and take the right steps to reach your wound prevention and treatment goals.
