Seniors who lack mobility need to be turned often in their beds. If they are not turned often enough, the weight of their body can begin damaging tissue at points where the weight is concentrated. This damage can lead to bedsores, also known as decubitus ulcers and pressure sores.
Bedsores may not sound like a serious condition, but they can eventually lead to such fatal conditions as septicemia. The bedsore acts as a gateway for pathogens that enter the body and cause infections that can affect vital organs.
When a senior loved one in a nursing home develops bedsores, it is often evidence of neglect. Our skilled and experienced attorneys can help you investigate the facts, help your senior loved one and hold the responsible parties accountable for the harm your loved one has suffered.
