How to nurse care for patients who have been bedridden for a long time?

February 22, 2023

In terms of nursing care for patients who have been bedridden for a long time, attention should be paid to the prevention of bedsores, massage of the lower limbs, and avoiding the occurrence of coughing, etc. The details are as follows:

1. Prevention of bed sores: Pay attention to prevent the formation of bedsores. If the patient can turn over by himself, encourage the patient to turn over on the bed and move the lower limbs. If you cannot turn over by yourself, help the patient turn over every half an hour to prevent infection caused by pressure sores.

3. Avoid the occurrence of choking cough: patients who have been bedridden for a long time should also pay attention to avoiding the occurrence of choking cough when eating.
