HD Nursing Advocates for Women’s Health and Safety During National Women’s Health Week

BENTON, Ark. , May 15 /Businesswire/ - During National Women’s Health Week (NWHW) May 12-18, HD Nursing, the leading patient safety solution that combines predictive analytics with individualized fall and pressure injury prevention, reaffirms its commitment to advancing women's health and safety, particularly during pregnancy and postpartum recovery. An estimated 1 in 4 women experiences a fall during pregnancy, posing serious risks to both mother and baby. This points to the value of HD Nursing’s Maternal HDS©, meticulously mapped to evidence-based interventions aimed at minimizing fall risks for expectant and postpartum mothers.

“Pregnancy and childbirth bring about significant physiological changes, increasing a woman's vulnerability to falls, particularly in hospital settings,” says Amy Hester, PhD, RN, BC, FAAN, chairwoman and CEO, HD Nursing. “HD Nursing is committed to ensuring that every woman has access to the care and resources needed to thrive during this transformative period of their lives and across the continuum of care.

By providing healthcare professionals with actionable insights and resources, HD Nursing delivers comprehensive care tailored to the unique needs of women during pregnancy and childbirth.
