Super diabetic, twice quadruple surgery done. Having bed sores or pressure sores near anus. What should I do? Treatment?

My wife is super diabetic, after over 12 years diabetics mismanagement led her to heart problems, twice quadruple surgery was done in this month and she has bed sores or pressure sores near anus. It is not healing and action is not being taken by hospital nurses and doctors. I am in Burnaby B C Canada and hospital is Royal Columbian Hospital.

Diabetologist 's  Response

Your wife is a Diabetic and she has not seeked medical treatment it in the past.
Now she as developed bedsores.
Past is past.
Diabetic and wound care should go hand in hand.
Monitor and control the blood sugars very tightly.
Adhere to the diabetic treatment.
Wound and nursing care should be provided.
It the ulcers are left untreated there is a chance of infection and sepsis.
It will prove dangerous to the patient.
