What is a bed sore?

Bed sores are a major problem for patients who are confined to bed or a wheelchair, but aren't limited to the bedbound. These sores can affect anyone who spends long periods in limited positions and those who are overweight and have folds of skin that touch. Bed sores can be prevented by moving the patient frequently, changing bedding, and keeping the skin clean and dry. They are also called a pressure sore, decubitus sore, or decubitus ulcer.
