Order Medical Supplies for "Bedsores" When Possible

Patients and caregivers for housebound patients will often ask how to prevent and treat "bedsores" or pressure ulcers.

Prevention is geared towards frequent repositioning...gentle daily skin care...minimizing excess moisture...correcting malnutrition...and increasing mobility when possible.

Expect many patients at risk for bedsores to get protective creams that contain dimethicone, zinc oxide, or petrolatum. These offer a barrier from moisture...and prevent irritation.
