Bed Sores – Sign of Nursing Home neglect
Nursing homes owe a duty of care and responsibility towards their residents. Nursing home neglect can result in the resident developing bed sores. Bed sores occur due to lack of blood flow to certain areas of the body when a bedridden or wheelchair bound resident is not repositioned frequently enough. Bed sores can develop on the heels, buttocks, back of the head and shoulder blades. Bed sores if not controlled can spread all over the body resulting in complications which can prove fatal.
Prevention is easy
Bed sores can be easily prevented by repositioning bedridden or wheelchair bound resident every two hours.
