1. The best way to treat a bed sore is to prevent it and the simplest way: CHANGE POSITION OFTEN. One will have to carefully follow a schedule for turning and repositioning — approximately every 15 minutes if in a wheelchair and at least once every two hours when in bed. If the patient is unable to change position on his/her own, a family member or a trained caregiver must help
  2. While there are special cushions, pads, mattresses and beds that relieve pressure on an existing sore and help protect vulnerable areas from further breakdown, bed sores can still develop if position of the patient is not changed often so refer to point 1 above
