Are Bed Sores Painful?

By Nursing Home Law Center

Bedsores Painful

Yes. Bed sores can be excruciatingly painful due to the fact that they are essentially an open wound in the body and they frequently develop in areas where it is essentially unavoidable to put pressure (such as the back, buttocks or heels).

For this reason, even the most mundane everyday activities such as sitting, turning, lifting cleaning and dressing changes, can cause intense pain.

Jonathan did a great job helping my family navigate through a lengthy lawsuit involving my grandmother's death in a nursing home. Through every step of the case, Jonathan kept my family informed of the progression of the case. Although our case eventually settled at a mediation, I really was impressed at how well prepared Jonathan was to take the case to trial. Lisa
After I read Jonathan’s Nursing Home Blog, I decided to hire him to look into my wife’s treatment at a local nursing home. Jonathan did a great job explaining the process and the laws that apply to nursing homes. I immediately felt at ease and was glad to have him on my side. Though the lawsuit process was at times frustrating, Jonathan reassured me, particularly at my deposition. I really felt like Jonathan cared about my wife’s best interests, and I think that came across to the lawyers for the nursing home. Eric
