What Causes Bedsores?
If a patient is not turned or shifted on a regular basis, bedsores can form. Also known as pressure ulcers or decubitus ulcers, bedsores can rapidly progress from an area of redness on the skin to a deep, open wound in which bone and connective tissues are visible. Obviously, these sores are extraordinarily painful and can lead to serious infection or even amputation.
Our attorneys will aggressively fight to ensure that your loved one recovers the maximum monetary compensation possible in his or her unique situation. We will carefully analyze the nursing home’s records and its history of patient care. Not only will we pursue compensation in your case, but we will fight to ensure that this does not happen again. This type of neglect is completely avoidable as long as the proper care and attention are given to patients who can’t care for themselves.
