What are Pressure Sores?

Pressure Sores can occur when an area of skin is placed under pressure, for example, when a person spends a significant amount of time immobile in the same position. They can:

  • be very painful and can take a very long time to heal;
  • develop around prominent bony areas like the hips, lower back, tailbone, heels, back of the head and elbows;
  • range in severity from patches of discoloured skin to open wounds that expose the underlying bone or muscle, causing infection, sepsis and death;
  • be easier to prevent than to treat, because once the skin breaks down, it takes a considerable amount of time to heal and is prone to further infection.
