Pressurized ulcers, or bedsores, form when a bony part of the body, such as the tailbone or elbows, are under constant pressure for an extended period of time. Certain conditions make one more vulnerable to bedsores, including immobility, poor nutrition, and diabetes.
Nursing homes in Illinois are required to take action to prevent bedsores from forming on vulnerable patients. If your aging parent or loved one develops bedsores, or if existing bedsores are worsening, you may have the right to fair compensation under Illinois law.
