When you entrusted a licensed nursing care facility with your mother, father, grandmother or grandfather, you no doubt did so assuming that the nursing home and its employees would respect and follow appropriate standards of care. Perhaps your family placed an elderly or disabled relative in a long-term care facility because you believed that he or she would be safer in a supervised setting than at home.
Bedsores are caused by the failure to reposition, turn or rotate someone who is bedridden. If nursing home staff members fail to properly monitor a bedsore, it can lead to severe infection.
If your loved one is suffering from bedsores, there is a good chance that he or she is suffering from other types of neglect or worse. A lawyer with experience handling cases of nursing home neglect can undertake a full investigation of the nursing home’s procedures and fight for full compensation for your loved one’s injuries.
