Bedsores In Nursing Homes
When a nursing home resident suffers bedsores or pressure ulcers, the cause is almost always neglect on the part of nursing home staff. Bedsores develop from not being repositioned or moved in a bed or chair on a frequent enough basis. And, they are worsened by malnutrition and dehydration, which deprives the body of essential nutrients.
Developing a bedsore can weaken the body’s availability to fight off other infections and diseases. It could be the beginning of even more serious complications.

Committed To Recovery And Prevention
If you noticed a loved one seems uncomfortable, lethargic or irritated in the nursing home, something serious could be very wrong. Bedsores are preventable, but they can develop quickly. A nursing home resident might think nothing of it at first, but it will eventually develop into an open sore. If it is not cared for immediately, infection could lead to other ailments, amputation and even death.
