The term “bedsore” doesn’t do this injury justice. Bedsores, also known as pressure sores, are very painful and can be deadly. Chicago nursing home abuse lawyer Barry Doyle explains more in this informational video.
There are three main factors that increase the risks of bedsores, which include immobility, incontinence, and poor nutritional status. Federal regulations do exist regarding bedsores and state that residents should not develop this condition unless clinically unavoidable.
Bedsores in Chicago nursing homes should be prevented, as each resident has a care plan that outlines how these injuries are to be avoided. If these care plans are not implemented and evaluated properly, problems can occur.
When someone suffers from bedsores, it is not from a condition that happened overnight. It may be weeks or months before the condition is so critical that hospitalization is needed.
