Woman dies in Nursing Home as a result of an Infected Bedsore

A family has filed a nursing home negligence lawsuit after their mother died of an infected bedsore wound. The 73-year-old woman went to the nursing home hoping that it would be a temporary place of healing for her fractured arm. When she tried to leave the nursing home, she was denied an exit because she had a fatal wound. However, she had developed a bedsore due to nursing home negligence. Two years later she was still in the nursing home with court documents citing a dreadful bedsore wound. The woman’s daughter has now filed a nursing home negligence lawsuit claiming that the nursing home care staff was too busy to manage their mother’s basic needs. The bedsore had developed over her spinal cord and had darkened due to an infection. The doctors at the nursing home attempted to clean the pressure wound, while the victim writhed and yelled in excruciating pain. She then died shortly after.
