Has Your Loved One Suffered From Bedsores Or Pressure Sores?

Though nursing home injuries and illnesses cannot always be prevented, some of them can, such as bedsores and pressure sores. Bedsores are preventable. When bedsores are present, this is a clear indication that the patient is not receiving the proper care that he or she requires. Family members who suspect that their loved one is being neglected and have seen bedsores should turn to an experienced nursing home lawyer.

You need an advocate for your loved one's rights. At the New York law firm of Futterman, Sirotkin & Seinfeld, LLP, our lawyers are dedicated to standing up for nursing home residents who have developed bedsores as the result of negligence in the nursing home. We work closely with family members to ensure that the case is properly addressed and that future situations are prevented. Contact us today to schedule a free consultation to discuss how we handle bedsore and nursing home abuse cases.

What Are Bedsores?

Also known as pressure sores, pressure ulcers or decubitus ulcers, bedsores are lesions on the skin that can have a number of causes, including medication, incontinence, temperature, friction, humidity, age and unrelieved pressure. While most bedsores affect bedridden nursing home residents, those in wheelchairs and using other assistive devices may be prone to bedsores as well. They can occur on any part of the body, but when bedridden, an individual is more likely to experience bedsores on his or her backside, hips and legs.

Prevention Of Bedsores

Bedsores should never happen. They are completely preventable. However, when they are discovered early, bedsores are very treatable. With diligent and regular care, patients can maintain their health. Beginning with localized redness, bedsores can be prevented with:

  • Regular inspection of a patient's skin and body
  • Using proper mattresses
  • Proper skin care, including lotion
  • Regular turning of a patient such as every two hours or more
  • Proper maintenance of health through nourishment and hydration
