Title: Skin Checks | Client: Royal Melbourne Hospital
This video features interviews with three young people with spina bifida. They discuss the challenges of maintaining good skin health and the importance of a skin care routine in order to prevent pressure sores from forming.
One of the participants had been confined to a hospital bed for 10 months as a direct result of a pressure sore. Pressure sores are a constant threat to anyone who spends a lot of time in a wheel chair, and they can be very serious or even fatal.
