Resident Dies From Severe Pressure Ulcers (Bed Sores); Southside Virginia Nursing Home Settles

73-year-old nursing home resident developed several stage IV pressure ulcers in the seventh month of her residency at the nursing home. She died approximately three months later of sepsis caused by the pressure ulcers. The nursing home claimed the pressure ulcers resulted from arterial insufficiency and were not preventable. The resident’s daughter was her only statutory beneficiary. The nursing home and its parent company settled the case for mid six figures.
