People want to believe that the facility and caretakers they have chosen to care for their loved one are providing proper care. Even when faced with a feeling that something isn’t quite right, many well-meaning people decide to give nursing homes the benefit of the doubt.
If your loved one is suffering from bedsores, there is no room for doubt: He or she is being neglected. Unlike other ailments or injuries which could potentially have a reasonable explanation, there is no reasonable explanation for bedsores. Technically known as decubitus ulcers and also known as pressure ulcers, these sores are entirely preventable if patients are moved around on a regular basis and treated with the compassion that they deserve.
At Tremont Sheldon P.C., we are no strangers to nursing home neglect and elder abuse. We are dedicated to helping families hold negligent facilities and abusive caretakers responsible for their actions. Our goal is to provide you the comfort that comes with justice and maximize your loved one’s compensation for damages such as pain and suffering.
What Is a Bedsore?
Bedsores are skin lesions primarily caused by friction, humidity, incontinence, shearing forces and unrelieved pressure. In other words, bedsores are caused by people being left to lie in the same position for too long without being turned and without regularly being cleaned. If not addressed properly, bedsores can be fatal in their most extreme cases.
