My mum fell flat on her face for the first time this morning. It led to a cut on her eyebrow with a lot of blood loss. When we saw her she looked like she was unconscious but breathing like she was in deep sleep. She doesn't have any history of sleep walking and most likely she fainted while getting up from the bed. She refuses to get any dressing done for the wound. I think she may need stiches. However, she is so delirious right now that it is almost impossible to get any cooporation from her. I fear she may get infection. Does anyone know if such wound can lead to infection if dont get stiches soon? Right now we have managed to apply some antibacterial ointment (mupirocin). Ps: my mum has dementia most likely of lewy-body type. She refuses to do any tests and gets very agitated if we go to the hospital.
