Skil-Care Skin Protectors

Pressure ulcers and pressure sores associated with the geriatric residents usually appear over bony prominences and those individuals who are bed or chair-bound, or those with impaired ability to reposition themselves are more susceptible. Factors such as impaired circulation, nutrition, mobility, pressure and shear forces often result in skin tears, and pressure ulcers.

Fortunately most skin tears and pressure sores can be prevented with a careful nursing plan that considers special products that assist in patient positioning, skin protection and off-loading of pressure on bony prominences. All individuals at risk should have systematic skin inspection and healthcare professionals should consider products that minimize pressure, friction and shear forces through proper positioning, transferring, turning, and off-loading of critical areas.
