Bedsores and Pressure Sores

Bed sores, also called pressure ulcers (or, formerly, decubitous ulcers), occur on the skin when pressure stops the flow of blood, oxygen, and nutrients to the affected area.  When nursing home facilities and staff allow residents and patients to suffer bed sores, you owe it to your loved one to contact an experienced nursing home negligence attorney.

Representing injured and neglected nursing home residents throughout Ohio, the attorneys of Lowe Eklund Wakefield Co., LPA can help you stand up for your loved ones who were injured by bed sores or nursing home neglect.  Our team provides immediate investigation and response to nursing home negligence, helping you both implement corrective action and pursue all legal remedies for your loved one’s injuries.

Contact us now to discuss your claims if you or your loved one suffered any of the following:

  • Bed Sores of Any Severity
  • Pressure Ulcers (Open Sores)
  • Infection of Ulcers
  • Medical Complications of Any Kind

Contact an Attorney About Any Bed Sores or Pressure Ulcers

Bed sores themselves can be attributable to neglect.  For example, nursing home staff may negligently cause or contribute to development of bed sores by:

  • Failing to “Turn” an Immobile Patient in Bed
  • Allowing Residents in Wheelchairs to Remain in a Fixed Position
  • Failing to Perform Appropriate Skin Examinations
  • Failing to Clean Incontinent Patients or Residents
  • Neglect to Provide Medical Attention to Nascent Sores

Even instances of minor bed sores should be investigated by an experienced attorney.  Bed sores are more likely to occur in facilities that adopt neglectful or negligent policies and practices.  While bed sores can cause serious injuries, even minor sores can serve as a red flag that other neglectful or abusive conduct may be occurring.

If you or your loved one sustains a bed sore or pressure ulcer, a nursing home negligence lawyer can help you.  Call or email Lowe Eklund Wakefield Co., LPA now for your free consultation.
