What are pressure injuries?

Pressure injuries develop when a person is left lying in bed for a long period of time, which causes a reduction in blood supply to the skin.  Over time, the skin breaks down and will form an open sore.  Pressure injuries can be difficult to treat and slow to heal, and they often lead to more serious problems such as skin infection, bone infection, and death.  Pressure injuries are completely avoidable and should never occur.

Are Pressure Injuries Preventable?

Yes. Medicare considers pressure injuries, bed sores, pressure sores, and decubitus ulcers to be “Never Events” because they are entirely avoidable so long as proper care and preventative measures are instituted and implemented by the health care provider.
