South Carolina Bedsore Attorneys

Experienced Legal Representation for Victims of Nursing Home Negligence

Bedsores are serious wounds that occur due to prolonged pressure or friction on vulnerable areas of the skin. Also known as pressure ulcers, bedsores can be very severe in nature and, in extreme cases, may even be life-threatening. Individuals who remain in one position for extended periods of time, including people who are confined to wheelchairs or bedridden, are at a higher risk of developing bedsores. In assisted living facilities, nursing assistants and other staff members are responsible for taking proper precautions to ensure that residents do not develop bedsores and/or that bedsores are properly treated.

If you or a loved one developed bedsores in a nursing home or assisted living facility, you may be entitled to financial compensation. The Anastopoulo Law Firm can help you work to hold negligent nursing home staff members and facilities accountable.

What Are Bedsores & Where Do They Occur?

When people remain in one position for a long period of time, blood flow to certain areas of the body can be cut off or diminished. Without proper circulation, areas of the skin, as well as underlying tissue, can become severely damaged. Bedsores are wounds that affect the tissue and skin, and they are characterized by abnormal skin texture, tenderness, swelling, changes in skin temperature, and open or oozing sores.

Bedsores can occur anywhere on the body that is prone to excessive pressure, friction, or shearing over prolonged periods of time. They most commonly occur near or at the following sites:

  • Tailbone
  • Buttocks
  • Spine
  • Shoulder blades
  • Back of the head
  • Sides of the head
  • Back of arms and legs
  • Lower back
  • Heels and ankles
  • Behind the knees

The severity of bedsores varies greatly, depending primarily on the length of time they have been allowed to develop. Generally, they are categorized into different stages depending on how deep they are and to what degree they affect the surrounding skin, tissues, muscles, and bones. If left unaddressed, bedsores can lead to serious infections and other complications. They may even result in death.

Bedsores are very serious and often require extensive medical treatment. While some minor injuries may heal, more advanced bedsores may never completely heal, even with proper care. Nursing homes have a duty to provide a reasonable standard of care to residents. This includes making sure that bedridden and immobile residents are properly adjusted and moved to prevent bedsores. If bedsores do develop, the nursing home should quickly take the necessary actions to address and treat these injuries. Failure to do so constitutes negligence, and victims of such negligence may take legal action.
