Unfortunately, people who are bedridden, or bound to a wheelchair, are at risk of developing bedsores or pressure ulcers. While many who are in the care of a nursing home are at risk, these injuries are definitely preventable.
Nursing homes should be taking reasonable precautions so that these sores do not develop. If they do develop, the nursing home staff should treat them immediately.
The nursing home staff may be negligent if steps to prevent or treat bedsores were not taken. This negligence can result in serious injury or even death.
If a loved one has been a victim of nursing home abuse or neglect, you may be entitled to compensation. Call Hupy and Abraham immediately at 800-800-5678 so we can help you.
