Preventing Bed Sores 

Preventing Bed Sores

Bedsores are the underlying cause of death of several thousand Americans each year. It is much better to take steps to prevent the bed sores from occurring in the first place, because even if a bed sore heals, there is a good chance it will come back and the costs of treatment including flap surgeries can run tens of thousands of dollars and take month to heal

According to the leading doctors the best way to help prevent bedsores includes:

  • Use a modern medical type mattress with padding.
  • Bed bound patients should be rolled or re-positioned every 1 - 2 hours. 
  • Wheelchair patients should shift his weight every 10 or 15 minutes or reposition once an hour.
  • Increase protein intake of the patient
  • Keep the patient's skin moisturized
  • Use of Water Filled Mattresses or Sheep Skin Pads
  • Use of foam wedges to prevent skin contact between legs or ankle bones
