Bed Sores

When a loved one has been placed in a nursing home, you should not have to worry about the development of bed sores or pressure ulcers. When elderly patients have limited mobility, they may spend a significant amount of time in their beds. This sedentary behavior can lead to bed sores or pressure ulcers. If elderly patients are receiving quality care, then bed sores should not be a problem.

Protecting Your Loved Ones

Nursing homes must take the necessary precautions to prevent bed sores. It is important for families to be aware of the care that their loved one is receiving in a nursing home or assisted living facility. Bed sores may become infected, and in some cases, cause death. A nursing home or nursing home staff member can potentially be held responsible for failure to prevent the above from occurring.
