If you have a loved one living in a nursing home who is immobile, exhibiting fecal or urinary incontinence, has diminished mental or cognitive capacities, or is obese, then he/she is at a greater risk of developing decubitus ulcers (more commonly known as bed sores or pressure ulcers). Contrary to popular belief, pressure ulcers are not a normal or expected outcome of being bed-ridden. In fact, for the most part they are preventable.

Bed ulcers most commonly occur due to prolonged pressure on the skin from sitting or lying in the same position for hours or even days. The elderly are at greater risk because as we age, skin becomes thinner and is prone to tearing. It’s important to be aware of the areas of the body that are prone to pressure ulcer formation. The following is a list of areas susceptible to pressure ulcer formation provided by Medline Plus:

  • Heels and ankles
  • Knees
  • Hips
  • Spine
  • Tailbone
  • Elbows
  • Shoulders/shoulder blades
  • Back of the head
  • Ears

Nursing home caregivers are expected to provide adequate and safe care. When nursing home residents are not receiving meals, getting baths or being turned frequently, the nursing home facility may be held liable in the court for damages. Unfortunately there is a statute of limitation on these types of cases, therefore, if you or someone you know is a victim of nursing home abuse, it’s crucial to act immediately.

We have over 43 years of experience representing nursing home abuse victims and would like to do the same for you. Why wait another day? We have intake specialists available immediately during our business hours to hear to the facts about your case.
