TIPS FOR PREVENTION OF BED SORES IN ELDERLY:
Why bedsores formed?
- The bedsores occur in the elderly as a result of the exposure of the skin to the continuous pressure between the bed and bones, resulting in decreasing blood flow to the skin layers.
- It also occurs as a result of prolonged lying and lack of proper ventilation of the skin.
How can we prevent inflammation and the formation of bedsores?
- The continuous change of position, This is every two hours if the patient spends most of the time in bed and, every 15 minutes if the patient is unable to move, disabled or uses a wheelchair.
- Lying on the side at an angle of 30 degrees.
- Using special beds and mattresses to reduce the pressure on the skin.
- Do not put pads under the knee because this will reduce the blood flow to the feet.
- The use of foam pillows or ones made of gel, which works to reduce the pressure on the skin, but does not ignore the continuous changing of position.
- Daily examination of the skin, whether the patient does this by himself or a family member and focus on the examination of places exposed to pressure.
- If you notice a change in the color of the skin, such as redness, the pressure should be relieved from this place, cleaned well and put a prophylactic cream from the rash.
- If you noticed a bad odor, hardness in the skin or heat in the area prone to injury, you should refer to your healthcare provider for appropriate treatment.
- Attention to the healthy nutrition of the patient because in most cases, most patients suffering from poor appetite and lack of desire to eat so attention must be given to the food needed for the patient in that critical period.
- If the patient has diabetes, intensive care and follow-up should be provided by the physician.
- Continuous massage of places suffering from continuous pressure.
