This case takes place in Connecticut and involves a female with a history of spinal injury and limited mobility who developed a necrotic wound while she a patient in the hospital. On admission to the hospital the patient presented with a small wound on her lower back. Within the span of weeks the wound had increased in size and exhibited signs of significant necrosis. The patient was relocated to another hospital where the wound was surgically debrided. During her post-operative recovery in the hospital the patient became septic and nearly died. It is alleged by the defendants that the patient’s wound was not a pressure ulcer that later became infected (as the hospital claims) but instead was an infectious wound originating from the patient’s stay in the hospital.
