Every year, many nursing home residents suffer from the horrible pain of bedsores. Bedsores are a very serious medical condition that can lead to infection or even death. Also called pressure ulcers or decubitus ulcers, bedsores can typically be avoided through proper care. Unfortunately, nursing home residents frequently fall victim to bedsores because they do not receive the care they have been promised. Even worse, the condition is often life-threatening before family members are even aware that anything is wrong.

Bedsores are completely preventable when proper care is administered to a bedridden patient. No matter if your loved one is in home care, a hospital, or a nursing home, frequent attention is required to prevent bedsores from occurring. This frequent attention is not above and beyond the call of duty of the professionals assigned to care for your loved ones. When bedsores do develop, this is often a sign of a deeper pattern of neglect that has caused a great deal of pain and suffering for your loved one.
If you discover that your loved one has suffered from bedsores or other nursing home negligence, we take the necessary actions to ensure your case is handled in the best possible way. Our actions often involve:
- Thoroughly investigating a nursing home in order to uncover patterns of resident neglect that include unsanitary conditions, improper hiring procedures, and employee abuse
- Seeking the valued expertise of physicians and nursing home administration experts who understand the proper standards of care and the state health regulations of New York
- Developing a solid case in preparation for a trial that often results in the responsible parties entering into settlement negotiations
