Texas Hospital Bedsores Attorneys
Cases Of Bedsores in Hospitals Should Never Happen
Bedsores, also referred to as pressure sores or pressure ulcers, occur when a bed-ridden patient is not turned regularly. These sores can become infected and very painful if not treated or prevented. Many medical facilities fail to turn patients every couple of hours to prevent these sores from happening. If your family member is covered in bedsores, you should speak with a Houston lawyer handling these cases.

A Preventable Problem
Hospitals are supposed to turn bedridden patients on a regular schedule to prevent bedsores from developing. Under-staffing, lack of communication and a failure on the part of the administration to correct these problems are considered medical malpractice. You have the right to complain and to hold the nursing staff and doctors responsible for what has happened to your family member.
Medical professionals are very good at finding excuses as to why this happens, including “this just happens at this time of life.” This avoidance of their responsibilities is unacceptable. By holding the facility accountable, you may also prevent this negligent behavior from happening to other patients. Our attorneys will guide you through the process and fight for compensation on behalf of you and your loved one.
