If you, or a loved one has developed bedsores while being a resident in a nursing home or a hospital, where everyone receives a set standard of care, how could anyone possibly develop bed sores?
This can be answered with one word: Neglect.
UK laws require that the facilities that provide care for others (such as hospitals and nursing homes) are required to make sure that residents do not develop bed sores because they are much easier to prevent than to cure.
Also, residents and families of residents are legally allowed to seek compensation from facilities that fail to provide their loved one the legal standard of care. Despite the fact that these laws would seem to spark incentive for facilities to take better care of their patients and residents and should prevent them from happening, however this is not always the case.
