This short paper presents a qualitative study, reported in detail elsewhere (Hopkins et al, 2006) that investigated the experience of older people with pressure ulcers. The researchers were surprised to find how significant pain associated with the pressure ulcer was to patients or the impact it had on their lives. All quotes from the participants are taken from Hopkins et al (2006).
