San Antonio Bed Sores Lawyers

Bed sores (also referred to as pressure ulcers) develop as a result of immobility and long-term pressure on specific areas of tissue and skin. These painful sores are common among nursing home residents who may need assistance changing positions and moving in ways that prevent tissue damage. If a person receiving care in an assisted living facility does not receive adequate care and attention, they may easily develop painful sores that can have a serious impact on their quality of life.

As a caring family member, you choose an elderly care facility based on its ability to provide proper care for your elderly family member. If that facility is no longer providing the care you expect, please contact the San Antonio bed sore lawyers at Chris Mayo Injury Lawyers by calling (210) 999-9999.

Pressure Ulcers

Pressure ulcers develop as constant pressure damages skin and tissue, leaving a person with irritable and painful sores on the affected sites. Bed sores develop in four stages, and though healing can occur, it can be a painful and extended process:

  • Stage I-superficial soreness or discoloration that goes away when pressure is relieved
  • Stage II- skin becomes irritated, much like a blister or abrasion
  • Stage III-a hollow wound develops beneath the skin
  • Stage IV-significant skin is lost and pressure may even begin to affect muscles and tendons

These harmful sores can develop as a result of immobility in a wheelchair or bed. For elderly patients who require assistance to shift positions, painful ulcers may be a sign or result of neglect and abuse.
