Montgomery Bedsores Attorney
Has Your Loved One Suffered Bedsore Injury in a Nursing Home?
Bedsores often develop in nursing home residents due to neglect. These injuries are common and are a result of a resident remaining in the same position for long periods of time. This generally occurs in residents confined to wheelchairs or their beds. Bedsores are also referred to as pressure ulcers, pressure sores, and pressure injuries. Without proper treatment, these sores can become infected and lead to serious medical problems for these elderly adults.
If your loved one has developed bedsores in a nursing home or other elder-care facility, you should turn to our Montgomery bedsores lawyer at Sawyer Law Firm, where we devote a large portion of our practice on nursing home abuse and neglect. Our mission is to fight for your loved one’s rights to proper care and treatment when confined to these facilities. We put personalized service, compassion for clients, and more than 25 years of legal experience in this field on your side in seeking remedies for neglected residents and their families.
According to Johns Hopkins Medicine, bedsores commonly occur in individuals who are “immobile, unconscious, or unable to sense pain.”
These sores occur on areas of the skin that are in pressure contact with the bed or wheelchair, such as on the heels, butt, shoulders, back of the head, knees, and elbows. If the individual is not turned or re-positioned on a regular basis, given adequate nutrition, and skin care, these injuries can develop. In the worst cases, they can lead to infection and even sepsis, which is a life-threatening condition that can result in organ failure and even death.
Bedsores can also extend deeply under the skin, into muscle and bone. They often heal only slowly. In some cases, depending on whether the person has diseases, the healing process can take days, months, or years. When bedsores become infected, they can cause fever, chills, overall weakness, and mental confusion.
To prevent bedsores, staff in nursing homes need to pay attention to the skin areas most affected by immobility, provide the person with healthy food, and keep skin clean and dry. The individuals most prone to bedsores should also be given some type of movement or exercise, if possible, to keep their blood flowing.
