Bed Sores Are A Sign Of Neglect
In many cases, an elderly resident may be fully or partially bedridden. When this is the case, nursing home employees have a duty to care for the resident’s added needs. A bedridden resident is at risk of developing bed sores (commonly called pressure sores or pressure ulcers).

Left untreated, bed sores can lead to serious health complications and even death of an elderly resident. Nursing home residents have a duty to properly care for residents. They must understand that residents who are immobile and those with poor circulation are more likely to develop bedsores and take appropriate preventative measures to prevent bed sores from developing.
