A hospital visit is never something to look forward to and some are unfortunately much longer than others. Whether a patient needs time to recuperate after surgery, or is suffering from a debilitating illness that restricts mobility, lengthy periods of hospital bed rest are occasionally unavoidable. As disheartening as these situations are at the best of times, developing a pressure sore can make the experience far worse and result in permanent injury or disability.
Pressure sores occur when a patient is sitting or lying in the same position for an extended period of time. The good news is that this problem is easily avoidable, as long as patients are encouraged not to remain still for too long. The bad news is that, as a direct result of medical negligence, patients often don’t receive the care they deserve and are left to develop these painful sores. Older patients are particularly vulnerable, as are patients whose illnesses have caused them to lose weight, become desensitized to pain or experience issues with circulation.
