The cost of community- and hospital-acquired pressure ulcers is particularly high in terms of both patient morbidity and economics. Multidisciplinary wound care teams were developed independently at two different hospitals to deal with the needs of patients with pressure ulcers and to control costs. Although the goals of the teams at both institutions were similar, the strategies for achieving the goals were different because they were adapted to the needs of the particular institution. As a result, care and prevention of pressure ulcers have improved at both hospitals.
