A common form of neglect in elder care facilities involves neglect of care which leads or contributes to pressure sores also known as decubitus ulcers. Residents need to have regular wound care along with pressure relief (turning and special mattress or cushions), and nutrition. Most forms of elder abuse are preventable with proper care and supervision.
