More about care home neglect

One of the more obvious sign of inadequate care and neglect in care homes is untreated bed sores or pressure sores.
If not recognised and treated soon enough, bed sores can develop and cause a fatal infection.

Pressure sores or ulcers are common among people who are unable to move because of illness or old age and can be caused by friction, temperature or incontinence. They are most frequently brought on by unrelieved pressure on one part of the body.

The more severe the bed sore ulcer, the longer it takes to heal and the more susceptible the victim will be to other serious infections.

Should your relative suffer from this painful and potentially dangerous condition, it is possible that the care provided has fallen below the required standard. In that case, if harm has been caused, legal action may be considered against the care home.
