Nursing Home Bedsores
The nursing home neglect attorneys at the Pisanchyn Law Firm have dedicated their careers to fighting for injured people and their loved ones. Victims of nursing home abuse and neglect are often helpless in preventing medical complications, such as bedsores. They must rely entirely on the assistance found at their nursing homes, and elder abuse occurs when nursing homes do not adequately provide that assistance. Contact the Pennsylvania lawyers at Pisanchyn Law Firm if your loved one has been victim of nursing home bedsores.
Remember, the state licenses nursing homes and other healthcare centers, so they must meet quality standards. You have a right to seek justice if you think that a nursing home failed to meet quality standards in its care of your loved one.
WHAT ARE BEDSORES?
Bedsores (also called pressure ulcers) develop from prolonged pressure placed on the body through inactivity. Bed sores often appear on areas of the body with little fat or muscle, such as the spine, hips, heels and shoulders.
Severe bed sores can damage muscles, bones and joints. These sores can develop quickly, and they are often difficult to treat.
Many elderly individuals are unable to move or shift themselves to alleviate pressure placed on various parts of their bodies, especially those who require use of a wheelchair or are confined to bed.
EFFECTS OF BEDSORES
Complications of bed sores include:
- bone and joint infections
Nursing homes that fail to routinely move or shift their residents, thus causing bedsores, must be held accountable for their negligence.
