Bedsores, which are also sometimes referred to as pressure sores, decubitus ulcers, and pressure ulcers, are unfortunately one of the many dangerous signs that exist if an elderly person is being abused at a hospital, rehab facility, or nursing home. A bedsore can also indicate potential medical malpractice if the elderly person received a bedsore at a hospital. Nursing home residents and hospital patients are most at risk for experiencing bedsores because they very often remain in a fixed place without being moved about. If a bedsore is identified, it must be treated immediately to avoid further harm or damage. Thus, it is the nursing home or hospital’s responsibility under federal laws to prevent the bedsore from occurring by moving the patient or resident frequently or if a bedsore is identified when the patient or resident enters the facility, then the nursing home or hospital must ensure that the bedsore does not get worse. If you or your loved one have been subjected to poor treatment from a nursing home, hospital, or rehab facility and have developed a bedsore or have experienced a worse bedsore as a result of entering the facility, then speak with an experienced personal injury attorney to discuss your situation.
