Bedsores & Nursing Home Abuse in Greenville, SC

Passionate & Experienced Legal Advocacy

When we are leaving our loved one in a nursing home, we never expect him or her to be abused or neglected. We put our sincere trust in nursing home caregivers with the hope they will treat our family like their own, but this sadly isn’t always the case. In the worst case scenario, nursing homes can be a place of neglect or abuse. One of the most common signs of abuse in a nursing home is the presence of bedsores on your loved one.

Bedsores are painful pressure ulcers caused by pressure from a hard surface, such as a bed or wheelchair, as well as poor nutrition and dehydration. They can lead to infection, fever, cancer, sepsis, cellulitis, and more. If these bedsores turn long-term without proper treatment and healing, they can become life-threatening. If someone tries to convince you that bedsores are a normal part of aging, this simply isn’t true--they are most definitely a sign of neglect.

With wheelchair assistance, bed repositioning, proper skin care, and nutritional health, they can absolutely be avoided and prevented. If you have noticed a sudden appearance of bedsores on your loved one while he or she is in a nursing home, you must address the situation and seek legal counsel immediately.
