Bedsores or Pressure Ulcers Claims Lawyer
A bedsore or pressure ulcer, also known in medical terms as decubitus ulcers, are obvious signs that scream neglect. These painful and dangerous sores form on affected portions of the body when a patient is left to lie in bed unattended for long periods of time. Bedridden patients, or nursing home residents, especially, require a regimen of regular movement, adjustments and care to prevent these ulcers from forming.
Common places for bed sores to appear include:
- Back of the head
- Knees / inside legs
When these ulcers appear frequently, and especially when they go untreated, your loved one is being neglected. Call Stockbridge personal injury attorney Darrell T. Farr for legal advice and representation in a nursing home abuse/neglect claim to protect the rights of your loved one.
