Care of the Sick
., ARTICLE III
Patients confined to. bed for any
length of time often find the bed
which seemed so desirable changed
into a place of torment. "Bed
weariness" is hard to bear in any
case of illness, but doubly hard for
persons who are really helpless.
One of the most distressing
annoyances of a patient confined to
bed are bedsores and while not al
ways avoidable much can be done
to their prevention by faithful care.

likely to appear on the thin skin,
aged or depleted patient.

of time interferes with circulation
any tissue to which the blood is
not .bringing the necessary food
supply tends to become weakened
and, if. the condition persists, to
break down altogether.
The direct cause then of bedsores
is pressure and pressure is aggra
vated by moisture, wrinkles in the
bedclothes, crumbs or hard particles
of any kind.
Prevention of bedsores depends
upon keeping the skin dry and clean
and upon relieving pressure by
special devices and frequent turn,

•posed to pressure should be washed
a.t least twice daily with warm water
and soap and powdered with a good

Rubber rings are useful but
should be removed at intervals.
Ordinary cotton batting wound
with strips of muslin may be made
into rings and used to remove
pressure from heels, elbows and
shoulders. These cotton rings are
