Can you sue a hospital if you develop bedsores?



Click for online Bedsore Lawsuit Evaluation.

Bedsores can develop quickly, progress rapidly and are often difficult to heal. Caring for them can cost into the tens of thousand of dollars. Often, due to the lower staffing in nursing homes, patients are forced to wait longer for care, such as simply being turned in a bed, or the changing of soiled linens and clothes. One example of how they can happen is if a patient cannot change themselves then they are forced to sit or lay in their own urine until a caregiver arrives. While the patient waits, their skin is being weakened by the moisture making them susceptible to bedsores. Health experts agree that bedsores do not have to occur. Preventive measures from a nursing home, hospital or health care provider are your legal right. It is the duty of a nursing home or hospital to follow proper procedures to prevent them.
