What's your diagnosis?
I'll post the correct answer in a couple of days!
I agree, decubitus ulcer.
Absolutely, decubitus ulceration
Yes, it's a decubitis ulcer.
With good nurses, it's so easy to prevent, but often it's a prelude of death. The ulcers usually form on the sacrum or trochanter, although formation on the back of the head, elbows and knees is also possible. DÃ©bridement, infection prevention and ensuring well nutrition is crucial.
