If someone develops bedsores, you may wonder if you have a case for nursing home abuse or medical neglect. While it is true that most bedsores form from negligent actions, there are other times that they do not. It is best to consult with an attorney regarding your bedsore claim to see if negligence is present. Patients that have limited mobility and other health conditions can naturally develop bedsores even with frequent rotations. However, if the facility fails to treat those bedsores and allows them to progress into severe ulcers, or the patient develops an infection, they could be found negligent.
