Bed Sores

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. Death can occur if a stage 4 bed sore decubitis ulcer is allowed to advance to infection and aggressive treatment is not successful. Most pressure sores are easily preventable.
Stage 1: A persistent area of skin redness (without a break in the skin) that does not o disappear when pressure is relieved.
Stage 2: A partial thickness is lost and may appear as an abrasion, blister, or shallow crater.
Stage 3: A full thickness of skin is lost, exposing the subcutaneous tissues presents as a deep crater with or without undermining adjacent tissue.
Stage 4: A full thickness of skin and subcutaneous tissues are lost, exposing muscle or bone.
