Pressure Sores, Bedsores, Pressure Ulcers
It is estimated that hundreds of thousands of people develop pressure sores each year whilst in hospital or private nursing care. This is a shocking statistic when you consider that in most cases pressure sores are preventable with proper assessment and nursing care.
Pressure sores are painful and debilitating and can cause serious harm. They can develop within hours and although generally affect older people anyone who is immobile for a period of time can be at risk.
It is the caregiver’s responsibility to ensure that anyone at risk of developing pressure sores receives the proper care to prevent the condition occurring. If they do not assess the risk properly or fail to implement a plan to reduce the risk to you or a loved one you may be entitled to claim compensation.
