Whether you are seeking a general personal injury claim or a wrongful death lawsuit, we will fight to hold the nurses, doctors, orderlies or other staff members responsible for their actions or inaction. In many cases, we can also pursue compensation from the home itself as the employer is often responsible for the actions or inaction of its employees.
Nursing Home Lawyers in Maryland Identifying the Cause of the Bedsores
Bedsores, also called pressure sores, can be caused by a number of failed actions on the part of nursing home or assisted living facility staff, including:
- Failure to shift or turn a patient
- Failure to keep a patient well-nourished and hydrated
- Failure to provide cushioned or padded support
- Failure to provide exercise or rehabilitation time for a patient
Bedsores can also be made worse by a staff’s inattention or failure to notify the patient’s doctor or family upon noticing signs of bedsores. Our nursing home injury attorneys will work hard to identify the root cause of your loved one’s bedsores to ensure we are able to obtain compensation from the at-fault party or parties.
