When a hospital patient lies or sits in one position for an extended period of time, he or she can develop painful lesions known as bedsores. While hospitals have policies in place to prevent these sores, staff members do not always take the proper preventative measures.
Since the 1920s, Rosenberg, Minc, Falkoff & Wolff, LLP, has served New Yorkers injured by medical malpractice and hospital negligence. While our lawyers and staff have changed throughout the years, our mission has remained unchanged. Our New York hospital bedsores lawyers are committed to holding negligent medical professionals accountable and recovering fair and just compensation for our clients.
Hospital staff members can easily prevent bedsores (also known as pressure sores) from developing by monitoring patients and regularly turning them in their beds and providing equipment such as air mattresses.
Bedsores typically develop on pressure points such as the hips, buttocks, knees and elbows. It is important for family members to check their loved ones for bedsores, and seek immediate medical attention when they are present.
If negligence contributed to the injury, it is also important to explore legal options as well. Pursuing a hospital negligence lawsuit will not only protect your loved one, but help to ensure others are not harmed by these negligent practices in the future.
Our lawyers have successfully handled numerous cases involving nursing and hospital negligence. We understand how hard it is to know a family member has suffered in this way. We will do everything in our power to stand up for your loved one's rights.
