HOSPITAL PRESSURE ON ULCERS.
Staff at the Royal Liverpool and Broadgreen hospitals say they cared for 85,000 patients over the past year without a single patient developing a serious bedsore.
Diane Wake, interim chief executive said: "Preventing pressure ulcers is a key marker of high quality care and this is supported throughout our hospitals from the board to the ward.
"This achievement is a credit to all their hard work and we would like to thank them on behalf of all the patient's they have helped."
Bedsores or pressure ulcers are when damage occurs on the skin and underlying tissue.
Patients, particularly older ones, are often at risk of developing pressure ulcers.
