Is there anything I can do to keep sores from breaking out on dad, please suggest

Is there anything I can do to keep sores from breaking out on dad who is in hospital. He is diabetic.? He has a stage 4 bedsore, suffered a stroke and dr s say there is nothing else that can be done. I refuse to accept this answer. They are letting him just lie there and die. He is fully alert. How can I convince them there are other things they could do when I dont even know myself.

Need to change the position regularly. And moreover I would suggest you to make him mobile to a better extent so that the extent of sores can be minimised.
