Bedsores & Infections
Have you noticed an open sore or infection on an elderly relative or person you know in a nursing home? When elderly people are immobile or not allowed to get out of bed, a bedsore (also known as a pressure ulcer) can develop. Sores can become infected and cause serious health complications.
Additionally, malnutrition and dehydration can cause sores to worsen as the immune system weakens. It is critical to document and report bedsores and infections as soon as possible. A person’s life may be threatened if proper medical care is not administered.
