Bed Sores in Michigan Nursing Home

Our award winning Buckfire & Buckfire P.C. nursing home lawyers represent patients and residents who develop bed sores while in a Michigan nursing home or assisted living facility. These conditions develop because the nursing home staff failed to take the necessary precautions to avoid the bed sore from developing. Many residents are at high risk for developing bed sores due to a number of circumstances and the nursing staff is required to assess the patient and formulate a care plan to prevent a pressure sore or bed sore.

Example of early stage and late stage bed sore

Bed sores, also called pressure sores or pressure ulcers, are injuries to skin and underlying tissues that result from prolonged pressure on the skin. Bed sores most often develop on skin that covers bony areas of the body, such as the heel, ankles, hips or buttocks. Residents who are at risk of developing bed sores, are those with a medical condition that limits their ability to change positions, requires them to use a wheelchair or confines them to a bed for prolonged periods.  Bed sores can develop quickly and are often difficult to treat. Several care strategies can help prevent some bedsores and promote healing.

Proper inspection of the skin should be a part of the routine conducted at nursing homes and assisted living facilities.  At risk residents is anyone who is confined for a long time to a wheelchair or bed or who has limited ability to reposition himself or herself.  If a patient develops, a fever, drainage or foul odor from a sore or increased heat and redness in the surrounding skin, immediate medical care should be provided as these are all signs of infections!  Nursing homes and assisted living facilities are responsible for watching and maintaining the care of your loved one, if they fail to do so, a lawsuit may be sought!
