It shouldn't happen, but it does — all too frequently. Elderly and infirm residents of nursing homes often develop pressure ulcers, commonly referred to as bed sores, when they are left lying unattended on one side of their body for too long. Often, the ulcers develop on skin areas nearest large bones, including the sacrum, elbows, ankles and knees. If you or a loved one has experienced pressure ulcers, contact one of our elder abuse attorneys by calling us at 888.959.8508 or email us online.
