Suffering from Bedsores in Albany?

Defending Loved Ones from Neglect Throughout the Capital District

Decubitus ulcers (also known as bedsores) occur in hospital patients and nursing home residents who spend an inordinate amount of time stationery. In these individuals, the lack of movement and consistent pressure disrupts circulation to parts of the body such as the hips, buttocks, and heels, damaging the skin and tissue there. The tissues affected by this condition can die if blood flow is not restored and maintained. Those suffering from paralysis are particularly at risk of developing bedsores, as is anyone who is bedridden, who is restricted to a wheelchair or who cannot change positions without assistance.

At the law offices of Dreyer Boyajian LLP, our partner attorneys William Dreyer and Don Boyajian have nearly 70 combined years of experience handling cases involving bedsores or decubitus ulcers contracted in a nursing home or long-term care facility.

Protecting Victims of Bedsores

Decubitus ulcers develop quickly, progress rapidly, take a long time to heal, and are too often the result of nursing home negligence. But they don't have to occur. Proper nursing home care and preventive measures can maintain the skin's integrity and encourage the healing of bedsores.

The fact that bedsores occur so often in our nation's nursing homes is of primary concern to health care providers. There are specific federal and state regulations regarding the care that must be given to nursing home residents to prevent the occurrence and severity of bedsores. If your loved one has developed bedsores in a nursing home facility, it may be that the cause is the failure of the facility staff to monitor and turn your loved one. The facility should have appropriate equipment to help aid in the regular moving and monitoring of someone who is at risk for decubitus ulcers, even those at greater risk, such as an overweight person confined to his bed.

It should be of immediate concern if your loved one entered the facility without bedsores and then quickly began to develop them. Hydration, monitoring, and movement by the staff are key to preventing their development and spread, and their quick appearance is cause for you to alert the facility and the attending physician.
