Yes, you should take pictures of a bed sore for a nursing home resident. This is because when a resident suffers from bed sores, often times it is the result of nursing home neglect, and having photos of these sores will strengthen their case. The photos taken are treated as valuable evidence if you choose to file a lawsuit against the nursing home and seek compensation for your bed sore(s). In fact, photos of injuries are the best evidence to prove the serious nature of the damages suffered by the resident or patient.
Even if you are just contemplating whether to file a bed sore claim, you should always take photos of the sores immediately after the ulcer is discovered and throughout the entire healing process. This is because if you decide to file a nursing home neglect lawsuit, you will have valuable evidence to help prove and win your case.
