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