Pressure ulcers are one of the most common injuries in skilled nursing facilities. It is extremely unfortunate that they are so prominent in nursing homes since pressure ulcers are highly preventable with the appropriate care. If your loved one is at risk of developing pressure sores, make sure that he or she is being turned regularly. Furthermore, the nursing home should have also ordered a special low air loss mattress for your loved one.

Unfortunately, a recent study showed that knowledge of pressure sore prevention tactics are very low in nursing homes. Therefore, when assessing a nursing home's staffing levels, it is important to consider both quantity and quality. Specialists emphasize the importance of having adequate levels of Registered Nurses (RNs) to provide direct care to patients. A study has shown that low staffing levels of RNs is correlated to an increase in pressure ulcers in nursing homes.

When pressure sores do develop, it is important that they are immediately assessed and treated. Because pressure ulcers have many different stages, the staff must be trained to accurately assess the level of severity and provide the appropriate treatments for each stage. Because pressure ulcers can lead to death when they reach more severe stages, especially if the wound becomes infected, it is important that you make sure your loved one's staff is highly observant and attentive to your loved one's skin condition. Skin assessments should be conducted regularly to ensure that any pressure ulcers are treated early on in their development.

If you feel that your loved one's nursing home is not providing proper care and prevention for pressure ulcers as a result of understaffing, please contact us today to see how we can help you obtain your loved one's rights.

I had a heartfelt and memorable experience with Ben , very genuine and I can tell he loves what he does. His determination shows beautifully and it is amazing. In my opinion it is very rare you find people who love what they're doing and it shows. Not wanting to get religious on an review but, God introduced me to Ben for a reason. Summer
★★★★★
Ben was wonderful. He took our case when no one else was interested or wanted way to much money. We would highly recommend Ben because he really listens and takes your situation into consideration. We settled our case and we were only unhappy with one thing and that was the confidentiality clause but that was not Ben's fault it came with the deal. June
