    Correct answer:

    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. Débridement, infection prevention and ensuring well nutrition is crucial.
