What is Autolytic Debridement of Bed Sores?
By Nursing Home Law Center
Autolytic debridement is the use of moist dressings to promote bodies’ own enzymes to heal bed sores. Generally, this is considered to be a painless healing process. This may not be a feasible method of healing individuals who are in a weakened physical state as their body is not strong enough to complete the healing process.Related Information
