My MIL has been totally bed bound for a year and her skin has been perfect. I have given her excellent care all along and have been proud of her skin.........like it was a reflection of my care. Well, about 2 weeks ago, a bedsore developed on her tailbone and rapidly - super rapidly - grew big and deep! I have had hospice services for 12 months and we were all surprised at the speed this sore came on. I went online to seek any and all advice for treating this thing and after about an hour on the internet, I left the computer in tears. Wow, such a stigma regarding this difficult subject. Lawyer sites popped up everywhere and every post pointed to poor caregiving. I have given my MIL excellent care for 2 years in my home and my spirit is crushed after reading these posts. In my heart, I know that I am doing all that I can. Yes, I am turning her every 2 hours, applying dressings, feeding her protein etc etc. Isn't there anyone on this site who has struggled with this despite good caretaking? I am almost afraid to bring it up as the stigma "makes me look bad." I guess I'm hoping to find some validation?
