What are Bedsores?

Bedsores, also called "pressure sores," are not an inevitable result of living in a nursing home or other type of assisted living facility. A number of different factors can cause bed sores; however, in the vast majority of cases, they are the result of a person being in the same position for an extended period of time. A patient is most likely to develop these sores while lying in bed. Bedsores can also develop if a person is allowed to sit in a wheelchair or chair for too long without shifting positions.

The pressure, usually on the back, legs and buttocks, cuts off circulation, thus causing bed sores on any part of the body. The lack of circulation causes the tissue under pressure to die, and the bedsore begins to grow. Bedsores are easily prevented by monitoring a patient's condition and changing his or her position on a regular basis. However, this does not always occur, and the patient ends up with very painful bed sores that can become infected and lead to even greater health problems.

Phoenix Injury Attorneys Dedicated to Helping Victims of Abuse and Neglect

If someone develops bedsores while living in a facility under the care of a person or organization, it is a form of elder abuse. In most cases, bedsores develop because a patient did not receive the monitoring and attention he or she deserves and is paying to receive. Once a bedsore has begun to grow, it can move to muscle and other types of tissue and endanger the patient's life if not treated.

Legal Assistance for Bed Sores in Phoenix

Most assisted living facilities have preventative measures in place that keep patients with limited mobility from developing bed sores. However, when these measures are not followed for any reason, the patient's health is at risk for serious and potentially debilitating conditions. If someone you care for has developed bedsores and you're concerned about the level of care he or she is receiving, our injury attorneys can help.

They have many years of experience investigating these matters and a thorough understanding of proper care procedures and laws that apply to elder abuse. If someone you know is experiencing painful bedsores, contact Phoenix nursing home abuse lawyers Alexis and Mark Breyer at Breyer Law Offices, P.C. today.
