Stage IV Bedsore / Pressure Sore

Stage IV Bedsore is the last and most serious stage of all bedsores. In a stage 4 bed sore the patient has  large-scale destruction of tissue, muscle and skin occurs. Such massive loss of tissue can also include, along with damage to muscle, bone, and even supporting structures such as tendons and joints. Stage 4 bed sores or decubitus ulcers usually require surgery to remove decayed or necrotic (dead) tissue. If aggressive treatment of a stage 4  bedsore is not taken, then further necrosis and infection can lead to septacemia, possible needed amputation and even death.

Stage 4 medical treatment include debridement, constant changing of dressing & cleansing for proper wound care, electrical stimulation and surgery. Stage 4 surgery may consist of excising of pressure ulcer, surrounding scar, bursa, soft tissue calcification, and underlying necrotic or infected bone. On deeper stage 4 bedsores and decubitus ulcers a flap surgery is needed to close the wound, fill in the dead space thus enhancing vascularity of the healing wound, and distributing pressure off the bone

Neglect is the Major Cause of a Stage 4 Bedsore

" In order for a bedsore to reach stage 4 in a nursing home or hospital, there must have been serious lack of care and attention to the health of the patient. A stage 4 bedsore doesn't just happen overnight, it takes days of neglect on the part of the nursing home, it head nurse nurse, LVNs, staff and floor nurses to allow a patient to all but rot in their beds. Such nursing home neglect is called negligence and abuse. Such nursing home neglect is actionable in most courts throughout the United States...." David Willis - Trial Lawyer
