Bed Sore Lawyers
In hospitals, extended care facilities and nursing homes, patients must be attended to regularly. One problem that can arise if patients are left laying in beds or sitting in wheelchairs too long without being moved is bed sores, also known as decubitus ulcers. Bed sores can be extremely painful. Left unchecked, they can become infected and lead to serious complications. Medical facilities may be held accountable for bed sore injuries.
At Kampf, Schiavone & Associates, we hold doctors, nurses, extended care facilities and nursing homes accountable for serious injuries. Our lawyers have extensive combined experience handling bed sore cases for people in San Bernardino and throughout California’s Inland Empire, so you can be confident we can help you.
Bed Sores May Be One Symptom Of Greater Negligence
It is important that an attorney review all of the facts involved in a medical malpractice or personal injury case. When we investigate bed sore cases, we may find that there is greater negligence taking place than a patient not being moved from a bed or a wheelchair regularly. We may discover that a patient is not being fed properly and is at risk of malnutrition and dehydration. We may learn that the patient is not being provided his or her prescribed medications. There may also be emotional abuse taking place, with the patient being left isolated and alone for long periods of time. Whatever the case may be, we will take action.
