Nursing Home Abuse If you have recently discovered or been notified that your loved one has developed a bed sore while under the care of a nursing home or assisted living facility, don't hesitate to call or contact our nursing home abuse attorneys in Pittsburgh to arrange for a free consultation.

Are all bed sores the result of abusive or neglectful care?

The short answer is no. Medical conditions such as diabetes, for instance, can make nursing home residents prone to developing bed sores. However, most bed sores can be prevented or effectively treated if discovered early enough or closely monitored. Conversely, bed sores that have developed to the point where treatment is ineffective can be seen as the epitome of neglect.

What are the most common reasons bed sores develop?

If a patient who is primarily sedentary, bed-ridden or medically prone to develop bed sores spends too much time in one position without being moved, pressure sores are likely to develop. Factors that can make someone prone to developing bed sores include the use of poor quality mattresses, malnutrition, and dehydration.
