I posted over a year ago about a series of events that led to my mother developing what grew to be a very large bedsore.
I finally got her moved to a different facility a week ago. We had our first care meeting today. They are a much more caring group and will work towards solving it. I don't know that can happen. My husband looked at the picture. It is deep with muscle and bone showing.
She basically lies in bed all day because movement elsewhere just causes great discomfort. She is on a special air mattress and is moved so as to not lay on it constantly Fortunately she enjoys reading and watching news. Her life has been rendered to such a limited state.
It is just sad because none of this had to happen. A series of mistakes at the former facility led to this. I would warn anyone if their loved one stays mostly stationary on their back this can happen very quickly and is very hard to heal in the elderly who are further compromised.
