Pressure Ulcers and Bed Sores in Nursing Homes

Posted by Frank Spector | May 04, 2015 | 0 Comments

Pressure ulcers and bed sores are common complaints we get in nursing home situations.

They can lead to infection and death.

Pressure ulcers and bed sores are from a failure to turn a patient or failing to use the proper measures to prevent them.

Two troubling statistics-There are 2.5 million pressure ulcers that occur each year in nursing homes.  The cost of treating pressure ulcers can be anywhere from 2,000 to 50,000 dollars.

Pressure ulcers and bed sores can come from intense pressure on body parts like the buttocks, shear force from sliding in a bed, or from compromised tissues that are not kept properly cared for.

If your loved one has bedsores or pressure ulcers from a nursing home, call us toll free at 1-800-299-HURT. Or you can fill out any contact form on our website. For mobile users, you can text us.
