Bed Sores: Bucks County Nursing Home Abuse Attorney
Bed sores, also known as pressure ulcers, are a very serious concern in many Bucks County nursing homes. If left untreated, serious medical problems can develop and potentially lead to death.
Bed sores are wounds induced by constant pressure wearing down skin on certain parts of the body.

Pressure ulcers begin as coin-sized red marks that, without proper attention and care, have the potential to develop into large deep wounds.
