Bedsores expert witnesses will have varying medical experience, since bedsores, which are also referred to as pressure ulcers, are skin injuries that develop when an individual is immobile and unable to change his or her position, which results in damaged skin. Individuals who are bedridden or use a wheelchair, for example, are especially susceptible to bedsores and pressure ulcers. Bedsore expert consulting may provide insightful information for cases involving such areas as internal medicine, clinical pedorthics, nursing home care, elder care, physical therapy, rehabilitation, sports injuries, or other medical disciplines, each of which may become highly relevant in the event of a bedsores-related court case.
In addition to bedsores, experts in this area are often experienced with a wide array of medical issues, such as back pain, cancer, headaches, asthma, gastroenterology, emergency medicine, pneumonia, pulmonary medicine, vascular surgery, oncology, hypertension, or other various ailments and conditions. Many bedsore expert witnesses have backgrounds working with elderly patients in nursing homes or hospital settings, since it is common for patients to become immobilized due to advanced age. In such cases, it is imperative that nursing home residents receive the proper care and geriatric medicine, as failing to do so may result in pressure sores or other medical problems.
