Warning Signs Of Wounds

Dr. Michael Renfrow, General Surgeon with Baptist Health South Florida, says with a patient that cannot move it is imperative that someone checks out their lower back, hips, elbows, and heels. "The pointy bony areas are prone to ulceration and an ulcer can progress rapidly and the key is early detection and getting treatment early." He recommends taking the patient to their medical doctor or to the Wound Care Center.
