Negligent Treatment of Bedsores Results in $315K Verdict


This is a settlement for the Negligence lawsuit.

Miami, FL: The family of an 88-year old woman who underwent treatment for a Stage IV sacral pressure sore which the family allege was negligently performed and led to their mother's death, have been awarded $315 thousand in their medical negligence lawsuit.

The surgery was done through Vohra Health Services, a wound care company that treated residents at Miami Gardens Care Center. The woman's daughter alleged in her lawsuit, that the doctor involved negligently performed a surgical debridement by failing to remove all the necrotic tissue from the wound. The daughter further alleged that the surgery and post-operative care from the nurse involved caused her mother's death. Notably, the counsel for the defense counsel also blamed Miami Gardens for the worsening of the woman's bed sore.

The jury found the physician 65 percent liable, the nurse 25 percent liable and Miami Gardens, as a Fabre defendant, 10 percent liable.
