Bed sores, or pressure ulcers, are caused by constant pressure on the skin and underlying tissue due to lack of mobility. This pressure disrupts blood flow to the affected area and can cause damage to the skin and tissue, leading to an open wound. Nursing home residents are particularly prone to bed sores because they often have limited mobility. Those with advanced age, chronic illnesses, or disabilities are at an even higher risk of developing bed sores. The best way to prevent bed sores is to keep the person turning and repositioning in bed every two hours or so. Other preventive measures include providing a comfortable mattress, using pillows to relieve pressure points, and keeping the skin clean and dry. If a bed sore does occur, it is essential to treat it immediately so that it does not become infected or worsen. Treatment may involve using topical ointments, antibiotics, and specialized dressings. In severe cases, surgery may be necessary. It is important to monitor bed sores carefully in order to ensure the best possible outcome
