Bed Sores Cases
The pamphlets or literature put out by several nursing homes indicate that the home has a “zero-tolerance” policy for bedsores. Bedsores are ruptures or fissures in the skin due to a failure to move or turn a patient who is bedridden. Despite the zero-tolerance policy noted in the literature, bedsores occur often with sick or elderly patients in hospitals or residents of nursing homes. Even if they claim zero tolerance in their pamphlets, the defendant often argues that bedsores are inevitable.
