Holding Providers Accountable For Improper Treatment Of Decubitus Ulcers

Family members of bedsore/decubitus ulcer victims are often confused and surprised regarding the cause of bedsore injuries. Bedsores occur in the following way; when skin presses on a surface, the skin's blood supply is cut off. Healthy people move throughout the night, allowing for the flow of blood to skin/surface contact areas like shoulders, the back, buttocks, heels and ankles. Unhealthy and elderly people, however, are often unable to move, and bedsores result. Skin fragility associated with aging and abrasions from sheets can also contribute to injuries.

Bedsores are relatively easy to identify and begin with localized redness. Prevention is also simple, through:

  • The regularly turning of the patient
  • The use of proper beds
  • Proper and regular skin care
  • Adequate nourishment and hydration
  • Regular and frequent skin inspections, so that a skin wound can be treated before it becomes serious

Experience In Handling Bedsore Cases

The Queens law firm of Futterman, Sirotkin & Seinfeld, LLP, has handled numerous bedsore injury legal cases and believes strongly that nursing homes, hospitals and their staff should be held responsible for medical negligence. This belief is especially firm regarding bedsore cases because:

  • Victims are often senile and immobilized, and completely dependent on staff members who are paid to provide adequate care.
  • Bedsores are easy to prevent when staff members provide conscientious and diligent care.

We have handled cases in which patients have over a dozen stage four bedsores and cases in which families' requests for a response to developing bedsores were denied. Often, the causal factor is greed. Many care facilities exist to make a profit. When profits are put before patients' care, injuries and fatalities can result.
