When a family member or loved one passes on, you trust that any funeral home that you choose to work with will be compassionate, honest, and ethical. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. Funeral homes have been known to neglect or even abuse the trust that families place in them. Funeral homes that mistreat or mishandle a loved one can ruin a family’s attempt to honor their loved one’s life and render a very stressful time even more so.
Each year, bed sores affect millions of individuals. People confined to a bed, wheelchair, or who are otherwise largely or totally immobile are at a particularly high risk for developing these painful and potentially dangerous ulcers. Unfortunately, nursing home residents seem to be at the greatest risk of getting bed sores, as they often spend a significant amount of time in bed.
Every day, bed sores plague nursing home residents and bedridden individuals. Left untreated, bed sores, also known as pressure ulcers, can become infected and cause life-threatening conditions. In fact, each year over 60,000 people die from complications caused by bed sores. Fortunately, there are ways to treat bed sores if they are spotted before they have progressed to an advanced stage.
