Pressure ulcers are another name for bedsores and are one of the many signs of nursing home negligence and abuse. The skilled lawyers of the Clinesmith Law Firm +work hard to bring justice to the elderly and make sure that these cases are not ignored.
A pressure ulcer can be defined as an area of the skin that begins to break down and become damaged due to something continuously rubbing or pressing against that area. Pressure on this area reduces blood circulation to the area causing a deterioration of skin cells and resulting in an open wound.
Pressure ulcers often manifest themselves on areas of the body that is confined to a certain position on a bed or in a wheelchair.
Different areas of the body are affected, depending on the structure the person is confined to.
Most pressure ulcers result from friction and sustained pressure on the area of the body. Nursing home negligence is often a cause of this painful sore because caregivers may forget to inspect the positions the patient is in and may not move them frequently to give relief to the areas that are rubbed the most.
