An unfortunate reality is that our loved ones in nursing homes may fail to receive the level of care they need. One common result of insufficient care is decubitus ulcers, or bed sores. Bedridden seniors need to be rotated in their beds regularly to prevent the weight of their body from breaking down the skin at points where the most pressure occurs, such as the hips, buttocks, elbows, heals or shoulders. Another common cause of bed sores is failing to change soiled adult diapers regularly.
BED SORES NEED TO BE TAKEN SERIOUSLY
Bed sores can be a very serious, even fatal, injury if left unchecked. Bed sores can escalate from skin irritations to blisters to deep, open sores that reach down to the bone. Infection is a serious issue and needs to be dealt with appropriately.
If your senior loved one has developed bed sores, he or she may not be receiving the level of care he or she needs and deserves. We can help you protect your loved one and pursue compensation for the negligent care he or she suffered.
