Case Study

The Problem


Warning signs of bedsores or pressure ulcers are:

  • Unusual changes in skin color or texture

  • Swelling

  • Pus-like draining

  • An area of skin that feels cooler or warmer to the touch than other areas

  • Tender areas

Bedsores fall into one of several stages based on their depth, severity and other characteristics. The degree of skin and tissue damage ranges from changes in skin color to a deep injury involving muscle and bone.

Our Solutions

Use moisture barrier creams to protect the skin from urine and stool. Change bedding and clothing frequently if needed. Watch for buttons on the clothing and wrinkles in the bedding that irritate the skin.
