Bedsore risks for nursing home residents

When you have a parent or other elder loved one living in a New York nursing home, you likely expect that he or she will receive regular, adequate care, but unfortunately, this is not always the case in many nursing home and assisted living environments. At Futterman, Sirotkin & Seinfeld, LLP, we understand that nursing home residents with mobility issues need to reposition themselves periodically to avoid developing bedsores. We also recognize that many nursing home residents do not get the mobility help they need, which can potentially lead to a wide range of medical complications.

Per the Mayo Clinic, bedsores, or pressure ulcers, are particularly common among people who are unable to move or spend much time out of bed, and they are more common on certain parts of the body than others. Often found on the hips, heels, ankles, buttocks and other bony parts of the body, bedsores typically develop when the skin covering these areas undergoes exposure to prolonged pressure.

While bedsores can prove unsightly, they also have the potential to lead to serious health complications. In some cases, bedsores can lead to cellulitis, which is a type of skin infection typically characterized by redness or swelling. In other instances, bone or joint infections can develop from pressure ulcers, which, over time, can reduce mobility in a patient or resident’s limbs or joints. In more severe cases, cancer and sepsis, which can prove life-threatening, can also result from bedsores.

Nursing homes and other residential facilities that house older adults can reduce your loved one’s chances of developing bedsores by making sure he or she moves frequently. Adjusting the elevation of a patient’s bed and relying on certain types of specialty cushions can also reduce a patient or resident’s chances of developing bedsores.
