Chicago Nursing Home Bedsore and Pressure Ulcers Attorneys

Bedsores are incredibly painful and totally avoidable. An attentive nursing home staff will take care to move and reposition elderly residents so these pressure ulcers do not have a chance to develop. Proper hydration and nutrition also aid in the overall health of a patient's skin. Unfortunately, many nursing homes are understaffed or their staff is negligent in its duties. In these situations, painful sores become common.

At Steinberg Goodman & Kalish, we are Chicago nursing home bedsore and pressure ulcers lawyers. We have extensive experience guiding clients through even the most complex personal injury cases. If your elderly loved one has suffered an injury while in the care of a nursing home, it is important to contact a skilled attorney. We will fight to ensure this behavior stops while working to ensure you receive the compensation necessary to provide the exceptional medical care your loved one deserves.

Nursing Home Neglect Law Firm

Many health care policies are in place that require wheelchair or bedridden patients to be repositioned every two hours. This movement prevents bedsores, or decubitus ulcers, from occurring. Unfortunately, it is not uncommon for a poorly trained staff or poorly staffed facility to let these policies lapse. In addition to malnutrition and dehydration, bedsores become prevalent. Once the ulcers appear, they can get increasingly more painful and dangerous, ultimately affecting muscle and bone. Let us help you hold those responsible accountable for their actions.
