Chicago Nursing Home Bed Sore Injury Attorneys
When you ultimately made the decision to entrust the care and medical attention of your elderly loved one to a nursing home, you did so with the belief that it would act professionally, and in the best interest of the patient. Unfortunately, it is not uncommon for nursing homes to break this covenant of trust.
If your loved one suffered an injury while residing at a health care facility, do not hesitate to contact one of the Chicago nursing home bed sore injury lawyers at Woodruff Johnson & Palermo. Bed sores, or pressure ulcers, can occur when any part of the body is exposed to the same pressure for great lengths of time. These sores can quickly lead to infection and damage the skin, subcutaneous tissue, muscle or bone. These injuries are serious, and they are difficult to fully recover from. It is important that you get a skilled attorney fighting on your behalf as early as possible.

Several situations can lead to bed sores, including an inattentive staff, poorly trained staff, negligent workers’ or failure to monitor and communicate special needs. If a person is left in the same position in bed or sitting for countless hours, the pressure on that portion of the skin can lead to bed sores, infection and premature death. Basic care requires the timely turning or repositioning of an elderly individual who cannot move on his or her own. Schedule a free consultation with our firm today.
