  • Spinal Cord Injury

    Nursing Home Abuse

    This case involved a young lady who suffered a spinal cord injury resulting in paraplegia during an automobile accident. After being stabilized, the young lady was transferred to the hospital floor where she developed severe pressure sores on her hips within two weeks.

    The hospital argued that the patient had been turned and repositioned regularly while she was in bed. The hospital also argued that the patient’s medical condition made the pressure sores unpreventable. However, a close look at the medical records revealed that the young lady had been left sitting in a bedside chair for long periods of time. The pressure sores developed on her ischial tuberosities which are the areas where pressure is applied when you sit in a chair.
