Lawyers For Nursing Home Pressure Sore Victims
Pressure sores are a debilitating type of injury that causes intense suffering and often death. Also called pressure ulcers, they usually develop when a bed-ridden person is not moved for extended period of time. The person’s weight pressing down on the bony areas of the heels, hips, and tailbone cuts off circulation and destroys tissue. In the most severe cases, tissue damage extends all the way to the person’s bones.
Pressure sores are most commonly seen in nursing homes. There is no excuse for such injuries. Periodic repositioning of a person’s body is all it takes to prevent pressure sores. But sadly, this doesn’t always happen in nursing homes due to lack of negligence, lack of training and lack of managerial oversight. The result? Many nursing home residents suffer needless pain and agony.
