Bedsores and pressure sores should never happen while in a hospital, nursing home or other facility. COVID-19 is not an excuse to allow bedsores to develop and worsen during your, or your loved ones, medical treatment at a hospital, nursing home or other facility.
The bedsore develops due to prolonged pressure or friction on vulnerable areas of the body. Typical areas include, the tail bone, sacrum, hips, heels and elbows. Bedsores with red irritated skin left untreated will breakdown, leading to tissue death, then the skin will break open and become infected, and ultimately and tragically leading to death in some cases. Bedsores can also trigger other ailments, such as bladder distension, anemia and sepsis, sometimes resulting in a wrongful death. It is important to understand that bedsores are 100 percent preventable, is a sign of negligence and yes, you can sue for the damage and pain that bedsores or pressure sores cause.
