Why Is A Bed Sores Attorney Necessary?

Instances of bed sores or pressure ulcers are not always signs of neglect. However, when they are, it can be hard to prove. A skilled elder abuse attorney in Anaheim will understand how to uncover the truth and will:

  • Obtain your loved one’s medical records
  • Work with expert medical witnesses to evaluate your loved one
  • Review the training and safety records of the nursing home
  • Negotiation to obtain a fair settlement for your loved one
  • Prepare the case for trial if necessary

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).

These are caused by pressure that limits blood flow to a person’s skin. Over time, this lack of blood flow can lead to death of the affected tissue. Bed sores can become very painful and lead to:

  • Infections
  • Gangrene
  • Amputations

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.

In Anaheim, there are many facilities that are responsible for elder care, including:

  • Anaheim Crest Nursing Center
  • Anaheim Healthcare Center, LLC
  • Anaheim Terrace Care Center
  • Buena Vista Care Center
  • Coventry Court Health Center
  • Harbor Villa Care Center
