Anyone have any information on Kennedy terminal ulcers? I was only able to find this info on it during a search:
The first I've heard of it was today at a joint provider meeting. With very little info given.

I've seen this ulcer many times. We had one particular resident that was up and walking around one day, the next day he refused to get OOB, the third day he had this blackened area the size of a quarter on his sacrum and in a week it was the size of a CD maybe alittle bigger with sloughing and eschar. He was turned frequently, his appetite dwindled greatly and it grew larger. He became septic and died the following week....Very interesting
