Nursing homes have a legal obligation to provide proper care to all their residents. When they do not act responsibly, elderly and disabled people can end up with serious injuries that could have been prevented.
Most cases involving bed sores (decubitus ulcers) stem from neglect on the part of nursing home staff. In general, a resident develops sores on his or her skin after prolonged periods of lying or sitting in the same position. This is a preventable condition.
There is simply no excuse for neglecting patients and residents of nursing homes, extended care facilities, convalescence centers and assisted living facilities. Providers that are negligent can be held accountable through the courts. Our firm can help.
