Given the current circumstances, our office staff will primarily be working remotely. We will have a reduced number of people on site from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm. Our staff will still be responding to emails and phone calls and continuing to do the necessary things to care for our clients. We ask that if you do not need to visit our office in person, you stay home and contact us via telephone or email. We are still here to serve and hope that everyone stays safe and healthy.

Phoenix Decubitus Ulcers Lawyers

One of the most common injuries sustained in a nursing home is a bed sore (also called pressure ulcers and decubitus ulcers). Bed sores are lesions in the skin caused by constant pressure on an area of skin where the body has little natural cushioning. This can include the tailbone (coccyx), spine, buttocks or heels. It is important to realize that the elderly have thinner skin, so the danger of bed sores becomes even more serious.

When this danger is overlooked, a bed sore develops and becomes infected, serious tissue damage to muscle or bones can result. It can even be fatal.

Nursing homes have an obligation to identify the risk of bed sores and implement a preventative care plan. Federal and state regulations specify nursing home care for residents to prevent these sores. This can include nutrition, hydration and repositioning, as well as utilization of equipment, including special mattresses, beds, heel protectors and boots to prevent bed sores.

If a loved one has sustained injury due to bed sore, we are prepared to help you obtain the compensation and accountability you deserve.
