When a patient is immobile for long periods of time, it is the responsibility of the caretaker to take precautions to bathe, clean, and otherwise care for the patient. Sadly, bed sores are a reality for already ill patients because of negligent care provided to the vulnerable adult. In most case, bed sores are entirely preventable.
We handle nursing home negligence and bed sore complications, such as:
The serious infection that stems from untreated and infected bed sores can create deadly complications for bed-ridden patients. When you have trusted someone to care for your loved one, and that trust is betrayed by a lack of care, you can turn to our firm for experienced guidance during this difficult time.
Legal action against nursing homes, hospice care, and assisted living facilities can prevent future harm to your loved one, as well as other elderly residents in the same facility. We can use public safety laws to further hold negligent nursing homes responsible for health and safety violations, including nursing home abuse.
