Has a family
member developed bedsores ulcers in a
Nursing Home? Neglect can include failing
to prevent bedsores. Elderly patients must be moved and turned frequently
so that bedsores don't develop. Bed Sores left untreated can victimize
the elderly patient and even cause wrongful death. Bed Soresare
very often caused by a Nursing Home's inexcusable failure to turn
a patient frequently.
There are several
stages of Bedsores with stage 4 being the most serious/advanced.

bed sore decubitis ulcer is
allowed to advance to infection and aggressive treatment is not
successful. Most pressure sores are easily preventable.

tissues presents as a deep crater with or without undermining adjacent
Stage 4: A full thickness of skin and subcutaneous tissues are lost,
exposing muscle or bone.
