Have you or a loved one developed bedsores (also called bed sores, pressure sores or decubitus ulcers) in a nursing home? (or other care facility such as a hospital, hospice, elder care, assisted living facility, etc.)
If a nursing home or other health care facility fails to take precautionary measures or preventative measures to protect patients from bedsores and their complications, you may be able to pursue legal action against the nursing home’s owners or medical facility.
Bedsores are frequently caused by poor operating procedures, neglect, or carelessness in the care of nursing home residents and care patients.
Bedsores – depending upon their severity – can lead to a variety of adverse medical conditions and complications, including:
- Sepsis infection
- Weakened immune system
- Obstructed blood flow
- Autonomic dysreflexia (AD) (autonomic hyperreflexia)
In some cases, complications from bedsores can become life-threatening, and lead to death.
