REACT to RED is a resource for Care Homes and other Care Providers to prevent pressure ulcers in residents and patients.

Pressure ulcers are not just a modern day problem and historically were referred to as bed sores, pressure sores and decubitus ulcers. The elderly in care homes are a particularly vulnerable group, often suffering with age associated illnesses, co-morbidities and poor mobility. All of which vastly increase their risk of developing pressure ulcers. The estimated cost to the NHS is enormous and it is cited at being between £1.4 billion and £2.1 billion a year.

Many of the guidelines and literature state that early identification is vital in pressure ulcer prevention, so REACT to RED and prevent rather than cure.
