An important factor to consider before purchasing a hospital bed mattress is the prevention of bedsores and pressure sore ulcers. Bedsores can be attributed to a number of reasons and poorly made and maintained mattresses are highly significant factors. Bedsores can form quite rapidly, yet take months to heal. If the patient is on an inappropriate mattress, too much pressure will be applied to different areas of the body. This will inhibit normal blood flow, causing a bedsore. If the mattress is not kept clean of debris and fluid, or it doesn’t keep the skin dry by absorbing moisture, a bedsore can form. There must also be a reduction of friction that may tear the skin. These are the three main causes of bedsores and pressure sore ulcers. The best way to treat them is to prevent them, and one of the most important preventive measures is having the appropriate mattress.
