Treatment of Pressure Ulcers Requires Continuum of Care, Expert Says
A pressure sore (pressure ulcer, bed sore, decubitus ulcer) expert recently wrote an article in McKnight's Long-Term Care News & Assisted Living where he stated that, "understanding the seriousness and complexity of pressure ulcers

pressure ulcer management must occur not only from admission through
discharge, but continued to the next level of care by all medical
facilities and homecare agencies." For more, read the story.
