Bedsores are often indicative of a nursing home’s neglect both in causing and failing to prevent such ulcers. If you or a loved one have experienced bedsores at the hands of a nursing home and need to speak with a bedsores lawyer, we can help.
When you put your trust in a nursing home or assisted living facility, you assume that your family member will be well taken care of. Finding out that they have not been given the care and dignity they deserve can be a devastating realization. Especially when it results in bedsores.
Bedsores are ulcers that develop when a person’s body weight goes unrelieved for an extended period. Ulcers go by many different names, such as pressure ulcers, pressure sores, decubitus ulcers, and of course, bedsores. They can be extremely painful especially when an elder person is unable to easily move around.
If your loved one has developed bedsores or ulcers while in the care of a nursing home, assisted living facility, or long-term care and would like to speak to a bedsores lawyer who is experienced in this area, please call The Ruth Law Team at (888) 783-8378 today or schedule a free case evaluation.

Common Causes of Bedsores
In a typically healthy person, ulcers do not normally form because the person is continuously moving around and making minor adjustments to relieve any long-term pressure. Nursing home residents who lack the ability or awareness to make these continuous pressure relief adjustments are very susceptible to developing ulcers.
The nursing home must be aware of these residents who are at an increased risk for developing ulcers and take the appropriate measures to prevent the development of such ulcers. Some of the most common factors that contribute to bedsores include:
- Friction between the body and a bed or a chair
- Inability to move easily due to old age or illness
- Weight loss that causes less padding over bony areas
- Shearing or when the skin is pulled away from the bone
- Poor diet
- Dehydration or Malnutrition
- Moist skin due to sweating or incontinence
- Medical conditions such as diabetes
