Albany Nursing Home Bedsore Attorneys

Saratoga Springs Decubitus Ulcer Lawyer

Anyone who is bedridden all or most of the time is at risk of developing decubitus ulcers, also known as bedsores. Nursing homes have a responsibility to take basic steps to prevent and treat bedsores, and when they fail to do so, they can be held accountable for the consequences.

At the law firm of Law offices of Sanford Rosenblum, my Albany nursing home bedsore lawyers are dedicated to helping residents and their families get the maximum compensation they are entitled to in personal injury and wrongful death claims against neglectful facilities.

Understanding the Causes and Consequences of Bedsores

When someone remains in the same position in a bed for an extended period of time, he or she can develop bedsores as a result of the pressure that builds up in certain parts of the body. If left untreated for long enough, the damage done by bedsores may be irreversible.

One of the major risks posed by bedsores is the buildup of necrotic tissue that is highly prone to infection. Bedsore infections that become septic can ultimately prove fatal.

The nursing profession has known for decades that the vast majority of bedsores can be prevented by turning bedridden patients at least every two hours. Unfortunately, some nursing homes are so understaffed that they neglect this important responsibility.
