Atlanta Bedsore Attorney
Experienced Representation from an Atlanta Nursing Home Abuse Lawyer
Bedsores are preventable if the adequate care is taken by the nursing home and its staff members. Should bedsores develop or worsen, however, this may indicate negligent and inappropriate care on the part of the nursing home. When a nursing home fails to provide a level of care that ensures the well-being and safety of its residents, they may be liable to provide compensation for the injured party.

What Causes Bedsores?
Bedsores, or pressure ulcers, occur when a resident spends an extensive amount of time in one position. Whether in bed or in a wheelchair, the risk of developing bedsores is significant if preventative care is not taken properly.
The following are the proper techniques nursing homes should perform to prevent bedsores:
- Relocating, repositioning, or off-loading
- Letting residents lie at a 30-degree angle
- Dry bedding and clothing for residents
- Checking residents on a daily basis
- Using pressure-relieving devices
- Monitoring patients who are at a higher risk of forming bedsores
