Columbia Bed Sores Lawyers
When we place our loved ones in nursing home facilities, we expect them to be treated with utmost care and respect. Furthermore, we entrust our friends and families to caretakers that are expected to be well-trained. Unfortunately, poor training and negligent staff members at nursing home facilities can lead to serious emotional and physical trauma. One of the most common physical injuries neglected patients sustain is bed sores.
The Columbia bed sores lawyers at the Goings Law Firm, LLC are experienced with nursing home abuse cases. We want to help you protect the rights of your loved ones. Do not hesitate to seek legal action against negligent medical professionals and nursing home staff that injure your elderly family members.
Symptoms of Bed Sores
Bed sores have several stages of severity ranging from Stage I red spots to Stage IV muscle and bone deterioration. The most common symptoms of bed sores include the following:
- Red, discolored skin
- Painful or itchy skin
- Open sores or blisters
- Crater-like sores through the muscle
While bed sores that are caught early are generally treatable, bed sores in later stages can lead to serious and life-threatening skin and bone infections.
