According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, as many as 1 out of every 10 nursing home residents suffer from bedsores. Also known as pressure sores, decubitus ulcers, and pressure ulcers, bedsores may be symptomatic of a greater problem of nursing home neglect.
Bedsores a leading cause of iatrogenic death in the U.S. according to numerous reports. An iatrogenic death is an unexpected death caused by medical treatment. Bedsores are caused by constant unrelieved pressure and poor circulation. They are more likely to occur in areas where bone and skin are in close contact--like the back of the head, lower back, hip, elbow, and ankle areas. People with limited mobility are more prone to acquiring pressure sores.
Bedsores are divided into four stages depending on severity; from stage I, where the site is painful but the skin is intact, to stage IV, where there is large-scale loss of tissue. Pressure sores are treatable if discovered early, but they may be fatal in some cases if not properly detected and treated. Unfortunately, the treatment of bedsores is slow and painful.
