Earlier this month, a family filed a wrongful death suit against an Illinois nursing home, alleging the staff was negligent and failed to properly treat multiple bedsores that resulted in sepsis and eventual death. When the deceased was admitted to the nursing home, she had stage two bedsores after a week-long stay at a local hospital. The suit alleges that the staff failed to screen her upon arrival, develop a plan to treat the sores, and alert her physician about the sores. Consequently, she developed sepsis and died less than a month after her admission to the nursing home.
