Dade County Nursing Home Neglect Attorneys
When a patient is bedridden, he or she is prone to a number of health issues that require staff members to provide basic but essential care in order to ensure the patient's well-being. One of the most frequent conditions that tend to develop in bedridden patients is bedsores. These are blisters on the skin that develop when a patient stays in one position for too long without being moved.
Many bedridden patients are not able to move themselves so it is critical that staff members are diligent about turning the patient regularly, typically every two hours. If bedsores begin to develop, appropriate steps should be taken to help them heal as quickly as possible. Bedsores, also referred to as pressure ulcers, can progress into deep, serious wounds that could require surgical repair if left untreated.
Strong Representation for Neglected Nursing Home Residents
Perhaps the most tragic part about bedsores is that they would be so easy to prevent if the nursing home staff would simply do their jobs. When they fail to do so, it puts your loved ones at risk and causes them untold amounts of pointless suffering. If your loved one has suffered due to the negligence of the nursing home staff, you may have grounds for a negligence claim against them.
The Palm Beach County bedsore litigation attorneys at the law firm of Babbitt, Johnson, Osborne & Le Clainche have helped countless nursing home and assisted living residents who have suffered bedsores and other types of injuries at the hands of inattentive caregivers. We will seek maximum compensation from the facility and any other parties who may be held accountable.
