What Causes Bed Sores?

Bed sores, also known as pressure sores, pressure ulcers or decubitus ulcers, are caused by constant pressure on the skin. When left untreated, they can become infected, leading to severe tissue damage to bone and muscles. In extreme cases of infection, death may occur.

The greatest tragedy about bed sores is how easily preventable they are. By providing good nutrition to patients and taking the time to reposition them, they can be entirely avoided. When patients are properly cared for, as you expected them to be when you entrusted the nursing home with their care, bed sores are nonexistent.
