I Nengah Sukerna

56 year old man who we met at the main hospital whilst he was recovering from surgery to stabilise a back fracture which he sustained when he fell from a tree in his village of Bangli. He is paralysed from the waist down. Sadly due to immobility he had developed a Grade 4 pressure sore. We provided a pressure reducing mattress, dressings and Ensure (milk supplement) in an attempt to heal the sore. Thankfully his sore is much improved. He is currently bed ridden but now able to spend short periods sitting in the wheelchair we provided. He was previously the breadwinner of the family and now his family is left with minimal income. This has impacted his emotional wellbeing also.
