STAFF are close to eliminating pressure ulcers picked up by people while being treated in the county's main hospitals.
A new campaign was launched in May to tackle the problem and as a result, in August there were no category three or four pressure ulcers reported - the most severe type. Cases of category one and two pressure sores fell from 33 in June to 14 last month.
Staff on Ward 2 at the Alexandra Hospital are ahead of the rest having reached their 60th day with no acquired pressure ulcers thanks to their zero tolerance approach.
Worcestershire Acute Hospitals NHS Trust aims to eliminate avoidable hospital acquired pressure ulcers across all its sites by December.
