- In Depth Look
Leaning on her right side in the wheel chair all day long created a pressure sore, which was ignored. After 6 weeks of this torture, it finally took a toll on her poor body. The pressure sore grew into a large open wound and became septic. The caretakers of the nursing home facility decided it was a good idea to wrap a bleach-soaked pillowcase around the woman’s waist, covering the gaping wound. The woman died a few days later.
Even though this woman’s family came to visit her every day, they were unaware that their mother was being neglected and left to suffer. As a result of multiple strokes, she was unable to speak or move the right side of her body, and her family had no idea that she was left in a wheel chair from 9am to 4pm every day without being properly turned or repositioned.
