Pressure ulcer

Updated: 2020-02-29


Bedsores (pressure ulcers) are injuries to skin and tissue resulting from prolonged pressure on the skin.


They often develop on the heels, ankles, hips, and tailbone. People most at risk are those with a condition that limits their ability to change positions.


Pressure ulcers can develop quickly and may be difficult to treat.
