Bedsores Are Often A Sign Of Nursing Home Abuse. Our Personal Injury Lawyers Can Help!

Unfortunately, nursing home abuse cases are very common in a vast majority of nursing home facilities across the United States. One of the most commonly witnessed examples of nursing home abuse is the development of bedsores, also known as pressure sores. Bedsores develop quickly and are a direct result of blood restriction to a certain area of the body. When nursing home patients spend a lot of time lying in bed or sitting in a wheelchair, for example, these pressure ulcers rapidly develop in bony areas and can vary in severity. The development of bedsores is a very serious matter and if discovered in an elderly patient, these must be treated immediately. Our experienced Chicago nursing home abuse lawyers will thoroughly investigate your loved one’s case and help you determine if bedsores were the result of malnutrition, neglect, and/or dehydration. Call (312) 641-9200 to schedule a free consultation and defend your loved one’s rights.
