Ask 100 nursing home administrators and staff members what the single largest threat to the health and survival of their residents is and 100 will answer “bedsores.” Bedsores can afflict any person who is unable to leave their bed or move about in bed without assistance. Yet bed sores are the most common type of preventable injury that occurs in long-term care facilities.
When nursing home care providers fail to proactively prevent bedsores for bed-bound patients, victims and/or their families have a legal right to pursue compensation for their loss. The lawyers at Kennedy, Johnson, Schwab & Roberge, L.L.C., have handled dozens of nursing home negligence cases and have recovered awards totaling $280,000, $300,000 and more for victims and families.
