One such satisfied caregiver of a patient said, “My husband was suffering from head injury and grade III bedsores. Team from PGI came and guided us on how to take care of bedsores. They taught us about the dressing and maintenance of cleanliness. Their regular visits boosted our morale. My husband is now free of bedsores. The approach of the team is very friendly and positive. I thank them for their cooperation”
