Michigan Decubitus Ulcer Lawyers

Our Michigan nursing home injury lawyers at Buckfire & Buckfire, P.C. handle cases involving decubitus ulcers, also referred to as bedsores, pressure sores, or pressure ulcers in hospitals, nursing homes and assisted living centers in Michigan. Decubitus ulcers are injuries to the skin and the underlying tissue. Decubitus uclers is one of the major signs of nursing home neglect, nursing home abuse, or medical malpractice in a Michigan hospital.  The majority of  them can be found on areas of the body where the bone and skin are very close in contact.  These areas include:

  • Shoulder blades
  • Base of the spine
  • Sides of the knees
  • Heels
  • Hips
  • Back of the Head

Decubitus ulcers often occur in persons who cannot move around easily. Nursing home residents are at a high risk for decubitus uclers because they often remain sedentary in a bed or wheelchair, and many of times have to rely on a nurse or caretaker to move them.

With proper care and monitoring, these ulcers should either be prevented or timely diagnosed so that prompt treatment can be administered.  Medical malpractice cases arise against Michigan nursing homes when patients are not properly treated or when a delay in treatment causes the condition to come much worse.
