Arizona Bed Sores Attorney
Immobile nursing home residents are vulnerable to painful sores that result from continuous stress on body pressure points. When nursing home staff members fail to turn residents in their beds or allow them to sit in wheelchairs for extended periods of time, victims can develop bed sores (also known as pressure sores or decubitus ulcers).

When Negligence Leads to Bed Sores
Nursing homes typically have policies in place to prevent the formation and exacerbation of bed sores. Unfortunately, these policies are not always followed. Whether due to understaffing, inadequate training or other form of neglect, nursing home staff members sometimes fail to turn residents in their beds and make other adjustments necessary to preventing bed sores.
It is important for family members to check their loved ones for signs of bed sores. Bed sores are prevalent on pressure points (buttocks, hips, legs, heels, elbows) where there is not a lot of padding between skin and bone. Bed sores are extremely painful and slow to heal. They can be exacerbated by continued pressure and are prone to infection. In some cases, they can even lead to wrongful death.
Our attorneys have handled numerous cases involving nursing home abuse and have a long track record of success winning monetary compensation for our clients. If a loved one is suffering due to bed sores, we can help you explore your legal options.
