It is difficult to transfer control over the care of a loved one to a nursing home. You are no longer going to be in charge of the day-to-day care of your loved one, and instead you are going to have to trust the facility that you chose to do what is right.

Help Prevent Bedsores

While you might not be doing the day-to-day caretaking, there are specific steps you can take to help prevent your loved one from suffering preventable, potentially fatal, bedsores. Specifically, you can:
  • Ask the nursing home staff about their bedsore prevention plan.
  • Visit your loved one at different times on different days and observe how often a staff member comes in to help your loved one change position.
  • Ask how often your loved one will be checked for bedsores and what will be done if the beginning of a bedsore is found.
  • Ask questions if you notice any bandages on your loved one.

Your active involvement in your loved one's care may help prevent the development of bedsores.

Help Protect Against Bedsores

However, you active involvement may not always be enough to prevent bedsores. If your loved one develops bedsores due to the negligence of nursing home staff, then it is important to contact a New York medical malpractice attorney as soon as possible and protect your loved one's potential right to recovery.
