Pressure sores are usually avoidable. What I mean by that is that there is no reason why a resident should have a pressure sore unless they have some medical condition that makes it unavoidable. For instance, severe diabetes, peripheral vascular disease, which is a disease that affects the blood flow normally in the legs, or other extremities, cancer, or stroke. But, as long as they are repositioning your loved one every two hours, or every hour if they’re sitting, and if they are watching out for pressure sores, and when they develop treating them normally they are avoidable.
