Bedsores or pressure ulcers can develop if a person spends a long time in the same position. Also known as pressure ulcers, the sores are treatable, although full healing is not always possible. Without treatment the sores can eventually lead to potentially fatal complications.



Frequently changing positions can help the sores heal and keep new ones from forming. Other specific measures depend on the stage of sore. But the following strategies are helpful overall.

  • Relieve the pressure
  • Clean the wound
  • Apply dressings
  • Use topical creams
  • Address incontinence
  • Have dead tissue removed
  • Review the bedding
  • Take required antibiotics
