Pressure Sores

Need Nursing Home Attorneys In Charleston Who Will Fight For The Elderly?

Pressure sores, also referred to as bedsores or pressure ulcers, are injuries to skin and underlying tissue which result from prolonged pressure on the skin. These sores most often develop on bony areas but are by no means limited to those areas of the body. Those most at risk of developing pressure sores are those with medical conditions which limit their ability to change positions, are confined to a wheelchair, or are confined to a bed for extended periods. Pressure sores can develop quickly and are often difficult to treat.[1]  Pressure sores can cause serious infections, some of which are life-threatening. They can be a problem for people in nursing homes.[2]

Nursing Home Neglect and Abuse often results in pressure sores. Pressure sores are avoidable in almost all circumstances. Don’t let the nursing home tell you otherwise. Nursing home neglect sometimes results in the development of pressure sores. Assisted living facilities have no business letting residents develop pressure sores. At the Hughey Law Firm, our South Carolina nursing home attorneys can help with loved ones who suffer neglect leading to bedsores in a nursing home. A resident should have a care plan that prevents pressure sores or bed sores, and they should not occur if that is followed. Pressure sores can be caused by not only pressure, but by failing to provide proper nutrition and hydration. In some cases, failing to provide proper toileting and other failures leads to discomfort and unnecessary pain. Pressure sores are horrible and painful. We focus solely on helping you prosecute your nursing home claims and get justice for any pressure sores that develop due to abuse or neglect.
