Bedsores Resulting From Nursing Home Negligence

There are so many little things that can go wrong for a loved one in a nursing home. You have to keep a careful eye on things like bedsores, which may sound like a minor problem, but can become serious issues very quickly. If your loved one has developed bedsores or pressure ulcers, they are likely not getting the excellent and attentive care they deserve and rightfully expect.

At the Newark, New Jersey, and New York law offices of Robert A. Solomon, P.C., we believe that negligent nursing homes should be held responsible when they fail to live up to their duties and responsibilities. With over 30 years of experience protecting the rights of personal injury victims, our lawyers work to protect the rights of your loved one.

The Dangers Of Bedsores

Bedsores are always the result of a nursing home and caretakers failing to provide adequate care. Patients must be turned in order to avoid these dangerous conditions and adequate mattresses must be provided. Nursing homes are aware of the dangers of bedsores and they know what must be done in order to prevent them.

Many people do not realize the dangers of untreated bedsores. If a diabetic patient suffers pressure ulcers, they could develop gangrene and suffer amputation. Bedsores that go unchecked for any patient can become infected, eat away at bones, and in some cases be deadly.

It is the responsibility of a nursing home to monitor these symptoms and do everything they can to prevent bedsores and similar concerns. If the negligence of your loved one's nursing home has led to bedsores that caused catastrophic injuries, your family has every right to seek compensation and hold them responsible.
