6 key points to know about bedsores

Nursing home residents often have medical conditions that make it difficult to move about like they once did. For those individuals, the lack of mobility can lead to problems. In some cases, nursing home residents might suffer from bedsores. Understanding some basic points about bedsores can help people who have a loved one in a nursing home know how to handle these issues.

Families should be alert for signs of nursing home negligence

If you have a disabled or elderly family member who is a resident in a Pittsburgh-area nursing home, you are their best line of defense regarding incidents of negligence and abuse. A loved one's age, infirmities and declining cognitive functions can render them unable to protest against or report any indignities they may have suffered in the facility. Essentially, this makes them the perfect victims for abuse and negligence.


As our population ages and people are living longer lives, more and more people are turning to nursing homes to help with the care of their family members. According to the U.S. House of Representatives, Committee on Government Reform - Minority Office, over 17,000 nursing homes in the United States care for more than 1.6 million residents, a figure that is expected to quadruple to 6.6 million residents by 2050.
