What is a Bedsore?
Bedsores are a serious medical condition. Also known as pressure ulcers, this type of injury involves damage to the skin and underlying tissues that results from prolonged pressure. These sores can occur in a variety of places on an individual’s body.
Bedsores often form on a person's:
- Shoulder blades
When a person loses the ability to move, they become dependent on a caregiver. Bedsores are a clear sign that a caregiver is not providing a basic standard of care. These types of injuries are incredibly serious and left untreated, the most severe stages of bedsores could even result in death.
Signs & Symptoms of Bedsores
Anyone who is sitting or lying down for a significant amount of time is susceptible to bedsores. While there are steps that can be taken to prevent these pressure ulcers from developing, such attempts are not always successful. It is important to know the signs of possible injury so that you can seek medical attention as soon as possible.
Common signs and symptoms of bedsores include:
- Discoloration of the skin
- Skin that does not turn white when pressed
- Tenderness, pain, or itchiness in the affected area
- Blister-like wounds that are red or pink
- An area of skin that feels warm, hard, or spongy
If you notice any signs of a pressure ulcer, it is critical to seek medical treatment immediately. After this, be sure to report the incident to The Law Offices of Mark Redmond so that we can help you obtain financial assistance for your medical expenses and other losses.
