Keep existing bedsores clean.

Since bedsores occur in four stages, it’s important to recognize them early and take care of them right away. If a bedsore goes unnoticed and untreated, fatal infections can occur.

Bandage any open wounds properly.

If the patient’s bedsore is already an open wound, it’s important to apply proper bandages and change them frequently to prevent serious infection.

A nursing home has a responsibility to care for its residents and ensure their health and safety, making sure patients don’t suffer from bedsores. It’s important to remember that if nursing home caretakers do their jobs correctly, bedsores do not occur frequently and should never become a serious problem.
