PLCO-005013/PLMM-12032A-0521 PLLT-11364B The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) have categorized pressure ulcers as "never events," yet they affect 2.5 million patients a year—costing hospitals $11 billion dollars annually in treatment in the U.S. alone. 1,2 Using an advanced risk-based algorithm, Centroid monitors patient position and orientation, keeping clinicians informed about patient activity to help avoid preventable pressure ulcers and detect fall events. Featuring trended information about past position and duration, Centroid not only informs clinicians when it's time to turn a patient, but also indicates safe and high-risk zones for repositioning to promote patient safety. Wirelessly connect this wearable sensor to Masimo devices to help inform care decisions at the bedside, send patient data to the EMR, and provide remote notifications when intervention may be needed. 1 Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality.
