What are bed sores?
Sometimes known as pressure ulcers, bed sores can form when the skin doesn't get enough oxygen or blood flow. This lack of blood flow and oxygen happens because there is constant pressure being applied to that area of the skin due to improper care. The facility should be taking steps to prevent bed sores in their patients and residents.
Bedsores range in severity from just mild reddening of the skin all the way to severe open wounds that expose the muscle and bone, leaving the affected with a chance of developing illnesses such as sepsis, which can lead to death. Seniors have a greater risk of bedsores due to their skin already being thinner and more fragile.
How to prevent bed sores
Bed sores happen because hospital patients or nursing home residents are left to lie in a bed, sit in a wheelchair or somewhere else, and are not able to move for long periods of time. In order to prevent bed sores, hospital and nursing home staff should be regularly either moving the patient or resident, or helping them move themselves. Most facilities try to move patients or residents every two hours.
Where do bed sores happen?
The most likely places to develop bedsores include:
The hospital and nursing home staff should be regularly checking these areas to make sure the patient or resident isn't developing bedsores or pressure ulcers.
