A pressure injury is an injury to an area of skin or the soft tissue underneath. These nearly always develop in places where there are bones right under the skin.

The injury can occur on the surface of the skin, or it can be very deep.  Pressure ulcers are easy to prevent but difficult to treat. Download this fact sheet for more information!
