What Are Bed Sores, and What Causes Them?
Bed sores are also called pressure sores, and both names are apt. These types of sores break out along the skin where your body comes into contact for too long with another object.
The reason they are often called bed sores is because people who are bedridden spend an enormous amount of time in one position. If the person’s position isn’t regularly shifted, they can get bed sores. Common areas on the body prone to pressure sores are ankles, elbows, heels, hips, and the back area.
Why do bed sores occur at nursing homes, care facilities, or medical facilities? Because patients are often unable to change their own positioning, either because of injury or limited mobility due to age, they can wind up getting these sores. These sores could be indicative of negligence on the part of the medical facility or nursing home facility staff. These sores can be prevented.
If your loved one has bed sores and you believe negligence is to blame, contact an ABQ pressure sore lawyer to discuss the possibility of filing a claim for nursing home abuse.
