Bedsores

Getting older affects bodies differently for each individual, and everyone is subject to the effects of aging. When elderly individuals are entrusted to the care of a nursing home staff, their loved ones expect that they will be provided with care and attention adapted to their age. Regrettably, some nursing homes neglect to take proper care of their patients. Such neglect can lead to dangerous physical harm, like bedsores, which are extremely painful sores that develop in concentrated areas of the body.

If you or a loved one has suffered bedsores because of the negligence of nursing home staff, you may be entitled to financial compensation for your pain and suffering as well as any medical expenses. The Appleton personal injury attorneys of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. understand that coping with negligent caretakers can be difficult and costly, and we are dedicated to helping our clients receive appropriate care and compensation.

Causes of Bedsores

Bedsores are most often seen in older individuals in nursing homes or other assisted living providers. There are several causes of bedsore development, including:

  • Immobility/not changing position
  • Recurrent friction
  • Humidity and other environmental factors
  • Spot-specific heat

Bedsores can be extraordinarily painful, and can worsen over time if not treated. If neglected, bedsores can develop into serious and dangerous conditions such as bone infection, sepsis, and cellulitis.
