Nursing Home Negligence and Bed Sores

Many times elderly patients in nursing homes, especially those with limited mobility, spend significant time in their beds. Some elderly patients are even bedridden. When a patient remains not only mobile but sedentary in the same position for long periods of time, bed sores or pressure ulcers can result. In the most severe cases, bed sores can become extremely infected and cause fever or even death. That is why nursing home staff must take great precaution in care to prevent bed sores. This can be easily done by rotating a patient's position, daily repositioning through off-loading, utilizing foam bedding or pillows, keeping the patient properly clean if he or she has soiled clothing, and encouraging daily activity and other methods.

A nursing home or staff that completely fails to attempt any of these types of preventative actions can be held negligent for such actions. In severe cases, it can be considered nursing home abuse. If your elderly loved one suffers from bed sores, seek our help immediately before things get worse. We will work hard to hold all negligent parties responsible for their actions.
