More than 2.5 million patients are affected by bedsores every year across the United States. Bedsores—also referred to as pressure ulcers and decubitus ulcers—develop when tissue begins to break down from prolonged pressure and they can occur anytime a person does not move enough, whether they are bedridden or in a wheelchair, and can result in serious or life-threatening complications, even death.
Patients who are elderly, have limited mobility, and/or have a medical condition that limits their ability to change positions, are more likely to develop bedsores if they are not given the proper, quality care they deserve.
BEDSORES ARE ALMOST ENTIRELY PREVENTABLE IF PROPER, QUALITY CARE IS RECEIVED!
