Bed Sore And Pressure Sore Victims Shouldn't Have To Suffer

Nursing home occupants face a range of health hazards, and for these vulnerable individuals, inadequate care can be permanently harmful. Bed sores and pressure sores may be different from other more obvious forms of mistreatment, but they're no less serious.

Why do the attorneys at Lipton Law care so much? Over the years, we've grown to love our place in the close-knit Southfield community. It's our firm conviction that as one of Michigan's premier sources of legal aid, it's our duty to connect nursing home abuse and neglect victims and their families with legally sound guidance and trustworthy knowledge. We couldn't be prouder to serve.

A Primer On Nursing Home Pressure Ulcers

Those with medical conditions that require them to stay in bed for prolonged periods may benefit from having a chance to take life slower, but they also face new challenges. The human body's soft tissues weren't made to sustain prolonged force, undue friction, pressure or shearing, which can result in serious harm like cell death. Bed sores and other pressure ulcers can be prevented by nursing homes that:

  • Rotate patients regularly to stop pressure build up
  • Provide appropriate nutrition
  • Furnish residents with more accommodating, sanitary sleeping surfaces and wheelchairs

Pressure sores aren't a foregone conclusion just because someone enters long-term care. At Lipton Law, we're known for investigating cases with unfailing thoroughness. We devote our full attention to helping our clients establish grounds for prosecution by discovering whether nursing homes could have done more to prevent or treat bed sores and infections. We are also committed to ensuring that what happened to your relative doesn't harm anyone else.
