I'm a hospice nurse and have a question about my pt. She is very cachetic - basically has no body fat left at all on her coccyx and buttocks. Just found 2 very small ~1cm stage 2 ulcers. Quarter-size reddish-brown drainage. However, the odor was very foul - not body odor, but wound odor - you know what I mean. I feel like the whole area could "cave in" at any time. Is it possible the odor is from an infection underneath the skin that I can't see, perhaps from tunneling? Skin is beefy red in color, but is still blanching. Our MD gave me an order for an ABT solution c wet-dry dsg changes qd x 5 days and bed rest c repositioning q2hrs for the next 4 days (at my request- the facility refuses to let this lady rest in bed...on her nice specialty mattress... Please advise if above is a possibility. I've asked around, but nobody really knows for sure..
