This case involves an elderly male patient who was admitted to a healthcare facility following a stroke. As a result of the stroke, the patient was left bed-bound and incapacitated, and was placed in the care of the Defendant facility. While under the care of the healthcare facility, the patient sustained numerous pressure sores. The skin lesions were noted by the nursing staff in charge of the patient’s care as redness, however their reports do did not accurately describe the sores as open wounds. Despite the fact that the facility was aware of the patient’s injuries, no measures were taken to address the patient’s sores. The lesions remained untreated until they developed into decubitus ulcers around the patient’s coccyx. As a result, the patient had been left with unhealing skin wounds that have required multiple surgeries.
