Bed sores/pressure ulcers?

Bed sores and pressure ulcers are often preventable. In 2011-2012 there were over 400,000 reported cases of bed sores.

Has Someone Close To You Been Affected When In A Hospital Or Care Home?

If you, or someone close to you, has suffered from bedsores after a stay in hospital or a care home you should be entitled to make a claim. As well as compensating you for pain and suffering, private care can be arranged so this painful condition can be improved as quickly as possible.


What Are Pressure Sores?

When a person has been in the same position for a long period of time, for example someone ill in bed or someone confined to a wheelchair, the flow of blood is restricted to the areas with pressure applied to them and this causes a bed sore to start developing.

In 95% of cases it is thought that pressure sores could have been avoided by the person receiving better care. For example a bed-ridden hospital patient should be turned regularly and provided with a special mattress to lie on. It is also believed that dehydration and under-nourishment can contribute to bed sores, therefore carers or nurses should ensure that vulnerable people have sufficient food and water.

Making A Claim

If you think you have a claim you will need expert legal advice from a firm of solicitors who are experienced in handling compensation claims for pressure sores.
