Bed Sores

At Roy Injury Law, we understand the devastating impact that bedsores, also known as pressure ulcers or decubitus ulcers, can have on individuals and their families. We are passionate about providing comprehensive legal representation and support to victims and families impacted by bedsores due to neglect or abuse in healthcare settings. We are dedicated to helping families seek justice, accountability, and compensation for their loved ones.

Understanding Bedsores: Causes, Symptoms, and Treatment Options

Bedsores are injuries to the skin and underlying tissue that result from prolonged pressure, commonly caused by immobility, friction, shear, moisture, poor nutrition, and medical conditions affecting blood flow. The symptoms of bedsores vary depending on the severity of the injury and may include red, inflamed areas on the skin, open sores or ulcers, and, in severe cases, damage to underlying muscle and bone. Proper treatment involves relieving pressure on the affected area, maintaining cleanliness, promoting moisture, and ensuring adequate nutrition. In some cases, surgical intervention may be necessary to promote healing and prevent further complications.

Suspecting Neglect or Abuse: Taking Immediate Action

If a family suspects that their loved one is suffering from bedsores due to neglect or abuse in a healthcare setting, it is crucial to take immediate action. Bedsores are often indicative of inadequate care and can signal neglect or abuse in a healthcare facility. Our compassionate team at Roy Injury Law encourages families not to hesitate in advocating for their loved one’s rights and seeking legal assistance to hold responsible parties accountable. Neglect or abuse by caregivers can have a devastating impact on the individual and their family, and we are here to provide the support and guidance needed during these challenging times.

Who Is at Risk and Consequences of Neglect or Abuse

Individuals who are immobile or have limited mobility, including elderly individuals, those with disabilities, and patients in hospitals, nursing homes, or long-term care facilities, are at higher risk of developing bedsores. Other risk factors include poor nutrition, dehydration, incontinence, and certain medical conditions such as diabetes and circulatory disorders. Neglect or abuse that leads to the development of bedsores can have severe consequences, including physical pain, infections, sepsis, cellulitis, and emotional distress for the individual and their family.
