Acting to avoid pressure ulcers is a rare example of a win win situation. Pressure sores are bad for patients. They cause pain, infection risk, the need for additional treatment and extended care. All these problems also make pressure ulcers for healthcare providers who could use precious resources better. Estimates suggest that every ulcer adds £4,000 to a patient’s overall care bill. And experts tell us that carers can avoid nine out of ten by adopting simple measures.
