that had not been treated properly.
As at-risk individuals know, decubiti
may lead to serious and costly medical consequences.
When she left our facility, she had two stage II decubiti

[R] Therapeutic Wheelchair Air Cushions, manufactured and marketed by Ken McRight Supplies, Inc., offer comfort and protection against decubiti

For the test, physicians and home health nurses used conventional treatments for such wounds as decubiti
, stasis ulcers, ischemic ulcers and surgical site wounds for 30 days; after this time, if the wound had not healed, they adopted the Optimum Outcomes system.
Which have the lowest incidences of serious infections, decubiti
, amputations, pneumonias and so forth.
