Many residents in nursing homes have mobility problems and are often bedridden; therefore, they can be particularly susceptible to decubitus ulcers, also known as bedsores or pressure sores. These types of injuries can be extremely painful and debilitating, but they can also be avoided when nursing home personnel take the appropriate measures. If your loved one has suffered needlessly because of the carelessness or negligence of nursing home employees, you want experienced legal representation to achieve justice and compensation.
Hudson & Castle’s attorneys understand the causes of bedsores, as well as the pain and suffering they can cause. We will conduct a thorough investigation of the facts and circumstances of your loved one’s injury to determine whether the nursing home had reasonable measures in place to minimize the risk of pressure sores, such as regularly scheduled turning or rotating of your loved one’s position in the bed.
We will look at other factors that can contribute to decubitus ulcers, such as sanitary conditions or nutrition and hydration. We will also examine the facility’s hiring, training, and staffing practices to determine whether they contributed to the injury.
