The correct answer to this question is B. Personal Care Assistants (PCA) are in charge of aging people are in need or medical attention or someone to help them do every day things that they are no longer capabe of doing.
PCAs should make sure that the bottom sheet in the bed is always free of wrinkles to prevent people on bed rest from getting bed sores. Bed sores, also known as pressure ulcers, can occur when there is a build up of pressure on the skin. They are localized damages to the skin that are a result of pressure or friction. Bed sores most often occur on the legs and feet.
It is imperative to keep the sheets free of wrinkles. Even the slightest constant pressure can cause sores to form on the patient. Bed sores can occur on any part of the body but are most commonly found on the buttocks, sacrum, heels, and back.
They should keep the bottom sheet free of wrinkles. Wrinkles in a bed increase pressure in a certain areas of the skin which might lead to sores. The highest areas of risk for bedsores are the feet and legs hence the bottom side of the bed needs to be the least pressurising one.
