Bedsore And Pressure Sore Victims Shouldn’t Have To Suffer

A Primer on Nursing Home Pressure Ulcers
Those with medical conditions that require them to stay in bed for prolonged periods face high risks of developing pressure ulcers. These ulcers can form when soft tissues sustain prolonged force or friction.
Bedsores and other pressure ulcers can be prevented by nursing homes that:
- Rotate patients regularly to stop pressure buildup
- Provide appropriate nutrition
- Keep surfaces clean
- Provide more accommodating sleeping surfaces and wheelchairs
