Notice Bed Sores?
Protect Your Loved One with a Orlando Nursing Home Abuse Attorney
Bed sores, also known as pressure sores, are caused by lessened blood flow to a certain area of the body due to pressure on that one area. Bed sores typically appear on areas of the body that have prominent bones beneath a thin layer of skin. Hips, shoulder blades, heels, elbows, ankles, tailbone, and other similar prominent bones can cause pressure sores to develop on the skin in the surrounding areas. Because many elderly individuals cannot move, they are reliant upon others to prevent bedsores.

Neglect Contributing to Bed Sores
Many residents of nursing homes have to rely on their caretakers in order to prevent bedsores. The families of these residents trust that the nursing home will care for their loved one and provide them with the treatment they need in order to maintain a high quality of life. When this doesn’t happen, the nursing home needs to be held accountable.
The development of bed sores in a nursing home could be caused by the following forms of neglect:
- A failure to regularly check residents for signs of bed sores or pressure sores
- A failure to change soiled adult diapers or wet bed sheets
- A failure to provide proper nutrition
- A failure to regularly move immobile residents
- A failure to notify family members and physician of bed sore development
