I've seen a number of newspaper adverts lately regarding the possibility of claiming against CH/NH/Hospital for pressure sores. My mum had two stage two sores and one stage three to four sore. I accepted the CH's comment at the time that as she was totally immobile and doubly incontinent pressure sores were 'inevitable', but I'm now wondering if that really is the case. I had not thought of looking at the legal issues surrounding this, even though at the time I wasn't very happy with the level of care at the CH. Eventually, on the recommendation of the DNs mum was given an air flow mattress and hospital type bed, with twice weekly changing of dressings by DNs, which did seem to help. Mum died in January. I don't like this sort of 'ambulance chasing', but if people don't make a fuss nothing will change. I wondered if anyone else has pursued this?
