My father developed a Stage 4 bed sore in a nursing home and required surgery to repair the condition. Can I file a nursing home neglect case against the doctor and nursing home?

Most bed sores and pressure sores are preventable and should not occur in a nursing home setting.  Nursing home patients must be properly assessed for the risk of skin breakdown based upon certain factors and proper preventive methods and treatment must be initiated by the nursing home staff.  If a patient is not turned of pressure areas, not bathed or cleaned, or not provided with a special mattress, there very well can be a nursing home negligence case that can be filed for the patient.
