BEDSORES

Bedsores are also called pressure sores and decubitis ulcers. Bedsores are caused by constant pressure on bony areas of the body, which decreases blood flow to these areas. They most often occur in the tailbone area.

Bedsores are preventable. Nursing homes are obligated to identify residents who are at risk for bedsores. The most common causes are immobility, vascular disease and diabetes. If a resident enters a nursing home without bedsores, and bedsores develop, the nursing home should be held responsible. If a resident has a bedsore when admitted to a nursing home, the nursing home must ensure that it is properly treated and does not worsen. Regular bathing is also important in preventing and treating bedsores. Severe bedsores can lead to infection and sepsis.

If someone in your family has developed bedsores while in the care of a nursing home, please call us at 414-271-4262. We know the law, and we know what it takes to maximize the value of your case.

INFECTIONS

If a nursing home resident develops an infection, it must be properly evaluated and treated, often with medication. The nursing home must also notify the resident’s doctor and family. Common infections include respiratory infections, skin infections and urinary tract infections. Severe infections left untreated can lead to sepsis, which is a serious infection of the blood that can be fatal for elderly adults.

MALNUTRITION AND DEHYDRATION

Nursing home residents sometimes lose their appetite due to illness or certain medications, or sometimes they are simply picky eaters. However, it is the nursing home’s responsibility to ensure that all residents receive proper nutrition and hydration to maintain a healthy body weight. Each resident should be evaluated by a nutritionist and have a meal plan in place. Sometimes appetite problems become so severe that the resident must be tube-fed. This should not happen unless it is absolutely unavoidable due to the resident’s health condition.

If your family member has been malnourished, dehydrated or has lost an unusual amount of weight at a nursing home, please note that statutes of limitation do exist and vary from case to case.

SLIPS AND FALLS

Falls occur frequently in nursing homes, leading to other medical complications with devastating effects. An elderly person who sustains a fall is more likely to suffer from a fracture, which can lead to immobility and put the elderly resident at risk for the development of pressure sores and other problems. The nursing home has an obligation to identify and assess the resident’s risk for falls. Those most at risk should be monitored closely, given preventative devices such as low mattresses, bed alarms and wheelchair alarms, and they should receive assistance with transfers to prevent them from falling.

If your family member has fallen in a nursing home, please note that statutes of limitation do exist and vary from case to case.

MEDICATION ERRORS

A nursing home is responsible for ensuring that all residents receive all medication prescribed by their doctors in the correct dosage and at the correct time of day. They may not give residents additional or new medication unless it is prescribed by a doctor. Nursing homes must have systems in place to prevent giving the wrong medication to the wrong resident. The staff must record every medication given in the resident’s chart.

WANDERING

Wandering is a risk that the nursing home must recognize and control through their plan of care. The nursing home must provide each resident with the appropriate level of supervision to prevent dangerous wandering habits. Exit doors should be alarmed to prevent residents from leaving the facility unsupervised. Personal alarms can also be used for the most serious wandering residents or residents prone to leaving the facility. The nursing home staff must also respond appropriately to alarms in order to ensure the safety of the residents. Failure to control wandering puts residents at risk for falls and other injuries.
