Anyone who works in a nursing home or another extended care facility should be aware of how serious bedsores are and how to prevent them from happening. There is absolutely no excuse for bedsores or pressure ulcers to occur as they are entirely preventable. If your loved one has suffered decubitus ulcers, it is important to seek out an experienced attorney to recover compensation for their damages.

We are dedicated to obtaining full compensation for the victims of negligence and abuse in nursing homes who suffer bedsores or ulcers, and have obtained numerous settlements and verdicts for our clients in the West Des Moines and central Des Moines area.

Signs Of Bedsores Or Ulcers

It is important to remember that bedsores only result from negligence and indifference. They result from leaving patients and residents in the same position for an extended amount of time. Bedsores can cause cellulitis, infections and even cancer, if untreated. Additionally, they can be made worse by poor hygiene, malnutrition and dehydration, which are other signs of neglect. All it takes to prevent decubitus ulcers is following simple standards of nursing home patient care.
