EHOB Newsletter
Greetings, and welcome to football season, otherwise known to the rest of the world as "fall." Watching some of the world’s most gifted athletes playing at the top of their game every Sunday, we are also reminded that everything can change in an instant, and that even the most fit people may find themselves suddenly in an extended hospital stay. That’s why keeping up on the latest in techniques and technology is of the utmost importance in returning everyone — from the elderly and frail to the young and vibrant — back to their regular lives as quickly as possible.

This month we bring you a piece reminding us of the value of continuing education, another on the stigmatization of pressure ulcer wounds and, finally, EHOB’s crew happily joining in the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge craze!

Be healthy, and go Colts!

We live in an age of the "Superbugs" such as MRSA and C. Difficile which have also created a stigma, often due to being associated with a hospital stay. But now we add one more thing to the stigma list "The Pressure Ulcer".
