3 Key Factors in Preventing Bed Sores

Bed sores are skin injuries that commonly occur with elderly nursing home patients…but they shouldn’t. Nursing homes often tell shocked family members that bed sores are unavoidable or just part of the aging process. That is simply not true. Bed sores happen when nursing home residents are left lying in the same position for long periods of time. That prolonged pressure cuts off blood flow to the area under pressure and eventually results in dead tissue. Open wounds then begin to form and can get worse until, at its worst, you can actually see bone. This FREE guide, 3 Key Factors in Preventing Bed Sores, covers what you should know about how to prevent bed sores and the warning signs if one of your loved ones is in nursing home care.
