What Compensation Is Available for Nursing Home Bed Sore Lawsuits in Oklahoma City?

According to the CDC, only 35% of nursing home residents with stage-two or higher bedsores (open wounds) received wound care from medical professionals or specially trained staff members. As bed sores advance, the resident requires professional wound care, antibiotic treatment, and surgery. Failure to provide necessary medical treatment breaches the standard of care and leaves the nursing home administrators liable for the victim’s damages including the following:

  • Medical expenses
  • Future medical costs
  • Lost income for family members who leave work to address the elderly loved one’s care needs
  • Compensation for pain and suffering
  • Wrongful death compensation

Bed sores, related infections, and deaths from sepsis due to infected bed sores are preventable when nursing home staff members provide basic preventative care and promptly address level-one bed sores with proper medical care.

Why Are Bed Sores a Problem in Oklahoma City Nursing Homes?

Many nursing home residents have limited mobility or are immobile, spending their days in bed or a wheelchair. When an immobile nursing home resident is left in the same position for many hours, the weight on their pressure points prevents blood circulation in those areas—particularly the buttocks and backs of the legs. Cell death due to a lack of oxygenation in body tissue under pressure causes first a reddened area, then—if left untreated—an open sore that advances through the skin layers and eventually exposes muscle and bone. Open bed sores are vulnerable to infection, particularly in elderly individuals with fragile immune systems. Without aggressive medical intervention, infected bed sores sometimes result in deadly sepsis.

Nursing home caregivers can prevent bed sores by repositioning the immobile resident every two hours. They also have a duty to promptly recognize and address the early signs of bed sores to prevent serious injury and death. When a nursing home fails to uphold this basic standard of care, they are liable for damages.
