The Nursing Team for the Prevention and Treatment of Pressure Sores and Stomy Care
Patients with pressure sores arising in non-hospital settings are a significant group of hospitalised
patients, especially in the departments of internal medicine and medical treatment wards.
This can be attibuted to inefficiencies of PATIENT’S CARERS, and also deficiencies in the primary
care and non-regulated system of private nursing homes.

Pressure sores remain a big problem that require innovative solutions.
The knowledge about pressure sore prevention should be shared with the
medical personnel looking after patients in hospitals and primary care
centres, as well as the patients’ families and carers.
Only such cooperation between primary and secondary care personnel will
prevent unnecessary long-term hospitalisation.
