Elderly residents in nursing homes should never suffer the pain and humilation of bedsores. If they do, it is an indication of neglect and the facility should be investigated immediately. If your elderly family member has developed bedsores in any type of care facility, you may be entitled to compensation for additional medical expenses, pain and suffering, and more.

Tate Law Group, LLC has considerable experience advocating on behalf of those harmed because of the abuse and neglect of nursing homes and other care facilities. As nationally-recognized trial lawyers, we have the skills and resources needed to help bring you justice.

What Causes Bedsores?

Bedsores, also known as pressure ulcers, are caused by prolonged pressure against any part of the skin. They are common in those who lie in bed or sit in wheelchairs for lengthy periods of time. The most common areas for bedsores to develop are the back of the head, shoulders, elbows, lower back, buttocks, hips, inner knees, and heels. These are all areas where the body makes constant contact when lying down or sitting. They can be prevented by constant turning or moving of the affected area so that pressure is relieved against the underlying tissue.

A bedsore may begin with a discolored, red, or darkened area of skin.

If not treated properly, it can lead to:

  • Swelling
  • Infection
  • Pus-like draining
  • Tissue damage to the layers of skin underneath
  • Damage to underlying muscle
  • Damage to underlying bone

As soon as you discover any type of bedsore, file a complaint with the nursing home facility, then call an experienced nursing home attorney in Savannah to investigate your loved one's injuries.

If you believe neglect has occurred, discuss your legal options with an attorney at Tate Law Group, LLC. Call us at (912) 234-3030 or complete our online contact form.
