There are some simple things you can do to prevent, or minimize, the risk of a bone infection. For instance, ensure that nurses adopt a thorough cleansing routine for cuts or open wounds. If you notice a wound not healing as it should, seek medical advice to prevent the chance of infections.
If you’ve had an amputation, it’s vital that you get the amputation site cleaned before attaching a prosthesis. Be sure to use the right footwear and protective equipment to prevent bone infections when running or participating in sports.
