Bedsores are a painful consequence of nursing home abuse. When an elderly person is not being moved around in bed or receiving proper nutrition and hydration by nursing home staff, the more likely they are to receive bedsores. If you or a loved one has suffered from bedsores as a result of neglect, an experienced attorney can help.

Kent M. Lucaccioni, Ltd., has been serving elderly clients throughout the Chicago, Illinois, area. Our attorney vigorously represents elderly clients against nursing homes whose employees caused sores and other injuries. We ensure their rights are protected.

A bedsore is a breakdown of a skin, in the form of lesions, pressure sores or ulcers. Nursing home bed sores are typically caused by constant pressure on the skin, usually on the tailbone, spine, buttocks or heels. When left untreated, the sore can become infected, causing severe tissue damage and can even be fatal.

When a person gets older, his or her skin gets thinner. Because elderly individuals have thinner skin, it is important for nursing home staff to make sure the individual is receiving enough food, water and mobility, in order to avoid bedsores. Nursing homes should also be putting into place preventative plans for those who have a higher risk of skin breakdown. Risk is determined by a person's medical history, his or her mobility and whether he or she wears diapers.

When looking for a lawyer, it is important to have personal information, health history and other information documenting the nursing home staff's treatment of the resident affected by sores. Documentation will be helpful in building a strong case. Turn to Kent M. Lucaccioni for caring and compassionate representation from a Chicago, Illinois, lawyer.
