People who have actually gone through the pain of bedsores know how painful they can be. The name, quite misleading it seems, came about because of those people who used to stay unconscious or bedridden for lying at one place for quite a long time. It is commonly seen among those who cannot sense pain or have become immobile in life. These are open wounds which result from damaged tissue and skin. If they are not treated on time, they can result in serious health complications like cellulitis, a skin infection causing swelling as well as severe pain.
Touching Souls International, jointly with Nurture hospital in Bangladesh provides assistance for the treatments of bedsore for these paralyzed patients. These patients are helpless and cannot even afford to go for proper treatments. The numbness in their eyes speaks about their pain. They have lost every hope of a healthy live and have become habituated living with the painful bedsores on their body. The appearance of these bedsores is so terrible and horrifying. Just imagine people living with these sores. Sounds terrible! But it is not incurable. Proper treatments can make you get rid of them. That is what we wanted to make people aware of. Our health initiative is backed up by a number of doctors, nurses and other staffs of Nurture hospital.
Free beds are provided to the needy people and they are kept under daily supervision by the doctors. They ensure that the hospital area is kept clean so that proper treatment of bedsore is possible. Under the supervision of these professional doctors the patients overcome from the pain within a short period. During the health treatment session, the paralyzed patients seem to imbibe in them a fresh confidence. The caring words of the doctors and the nurses make them completely out of the trauma that they had faced because of their paralyzed state.
