Are Bedsores Developing On Your Loved One In A Nursing Home?
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 loved one in a nursing home develops bedsores, it is often evidence of neglect.
