What is Autolytic Debridement of Bed Sores?

By Nursing Home Law Center

Autolytic Debridement

Autolytic debridement is the use of moist dressings to promote bodies’ own enzymes to heal bed sores. Generally, this is considered to be a painless healing process. This may not be a feasible method of healing individuals who are in a weakened physical state as their body is not strong enough to complete the healing process.

Client Reviews
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
