Why Did My Loved One Get a Bed Sore?
Bed sores (also known as pressure sores or decubitus ulcers) may occur in residents who are confined to wheelchairs or beds and cannot move themselves. The care plan for an immobile resident should include repositioning him or her periodically to remove pressure from areas such as the coccyx, hips, heels and elbows.
Sadly, some nursing homes are owned by companies that care more about profits than patient care. This often leads to understaffing or hiring staff members who are poorly trained. As a result, residents may be neglected by overworked or untrained employees.
Our nursing home negligence attorneys represent the families of those who have been injured by negligent conditions in nursing homes and other elder care facilities. We are here to fight for justice when your loved one suffers from an injury that can and should be prevented.
