Has A Loved One Suffered Due To Neglected Wound Care?
Nursing home residents and hospital patients depend on doctors, nurses and other health care professionals to properly care for their wounds and injuries. Many are helpless to do this on their own. Unfortunately, many health care facilities fail to provide proper care to wounded and injured patients — resulting in unnecessary illnesses and even death.
Hospital and Nursing Home Neglect
Neglected wound care is among the most basic services a health care facility should provide to patients. However, nursing homes are filled to capacity. Hospitals are understaffed. The result? Patients suffer.

- Staph infections
- Post-surgical infections
- Objects left in body following surgery
- Infections or illnesses caused by unclean hospitals and emergency rooms
