Pressure ulcers (also known as bed sores) occur far too often among older adults who reside in nursing homes and are never to be taken lightly. Left untreated, not only do they threaten one’s health, they significantly deteriorate the physical, mental, and social qualities of one’s life. However, pressure ulcers are highly preventable. Nursing home staff must be equipped with pressure ulcer preventative education and are responsible for making sure that their patients do not suffer from pressure ulcers. They are obligated to take steps to either prevent pressure ulcers from occurring or to treat existing pressure ulcers so that they do not worsen. Nursing homes must provide an adequate number of qualified and properly-trained staff in order to detect early signs of pressure ulcers and perform treatment protocols. Improper treatment to appropriately assess and care for patients with pressure ulcers can lead to infection, serious pain, and even death.
