Do you know what stage the pressure ulcer is? Is the skin broken or reddened? Has the person been evaluated by a wound care specialist?
Along with the proper dressing remember that changing the person’s position every two hours or so, alternating pressure mattresses and any other ways to keep the person off that area is standard. The dressing depends on the stage of the bedsore.
