Pressure sores are a significant concern for the elderly, rehabilitating, and disabled in nursing homes, assisted living communities, and hospitals. Without immediate treatment, an early-stage pressure sore could progress to a dangerous decubitus ulcer, claiming the patient’s life in days.
Untreated skin sores can deteriorate quickly, causing the skin’s dermis and epidermis layers to die. Doctors, nurses, and nursing home staff members must provide wound care that prevents infection while promoting healthy tissue growth.
Are you the victim of nursing home neglect and developed preventable pressure ulcers? Did your family lose a loved one through bedsore negligence leading to wrongful death?
