Answer:

It is a misconception in Texas that bedsores, also known as pressure sores, are a regrettable aspect of life in a nursing home. Bedsores are preventable and manageable – and if your elderly loved one is suffering from severe bedsores in his or her adult care facility, it could be a sign of nursing home neglect.

Bedsores are far less common if nursing home residents are moved regularly, if they have clean, dry sheets, and if they are treated early when there are initial signs of bedsores. Pressure sores are more likely to occur if a nursing home resident is not cleaned regularly, if they are not fed nutritious meals, if their beds are dirty, or if their position in bed is not often changed.
