How to prevent bed sores in hospital?

During your hospital stay, staff should ensure your skin is monitored and cleaned regularly. However, if you want to take extra steps to prevent any sores or irritation, there are some things you can do. Keep your skin clean and dry, excess moisture can lead to skin irritations.

Try to use water based skincare products such as moisturiser. Ask the staff for any protective materials you feel you need, such as heel protectors. Try to get out of bed when possible to relieve the pressure on your skin.

Remember you can ask for any help you may need, speak to your caregiver about your concerns and put a plan in place to look after your skin. Our interfit bed sheets do not crease, which minimises the likelihood of pressure sores.
