One of the most horrific forms of nursing home neglect is allowing bedsore to remain untreated. In fact, bedsores should never even happen in the elderly. When a nursing home patient is confined to bed or a wheel chair pressure is constantly on certain parts of the body. This pressure cause pressure sores. The patient must be turned or placed on cushions. Bedsores are serious and can be fatal.
Our Bedsore Lawyers Sue Nursing Homes
What Do Bedsore Lawyers Do?
Bedsore lawyers sue nursing homes for not treating bedsores. Bedsores are skin ulcers resulting from continuous pressure to the thin skinned bony areas of the body. This affects residents who are bedridden or in wheelchairs all the time. These elderly patients must be constantly moved to different positions or raised on pillows to bring pressure off these fragile areas. When they are not bedsores occur. Bedsore lawyers will hold the nursing home accountable for their negligence and the mistreatment of your loved one.
What is a Bedsore?
Bedsores are also called pressure sores and pressure ulcers. There are stages:
bedsores are not open wounds. They are irritation and a sign that something must be done to relieve the pressure to that area. They will progress if neglected.
pressure sores cause the skin to break open, wear away, or form an ulcer.
bedsores extend into the tissue beneath the skin.
pressure sores are very deep. They can reach into muscle and bone and cause extensive damage.
In stages 3 and 4 there may be little or no pain because there is significant tissue damage. Stage 4 complications include infections of the bone or blood sepsis.
