Senior nurses at two East Yorkshire hospitals have been warned that a rise in cases of bedsores amongst patients is ‘unacceptable’ – and it certainly is so.
Five patients were found to have developed bed sores in Hull Royal Infirmary and Castle Hill Hospital in Cottingham over the past month, it has been revealed.
Two of the patients reportedly developed bedsores when on surgical wards, two whilst in medical wards and one in clinical support, during the month of August.
Hudgell Solicitors will be strongly opposing Department of Health (DoH) proposals to place a cap on legal costs involved in clinical negligence claims against NHS organisations.
Importantly, we will do so to not to protect our own earnings in such cases, but crucially to ensure patients across the UK continue to have the option of seeking compensation when they have been victims of sub-standard medical care.
As specialists in handling such claims, we see the devastating, life-changing impact medical negligence can have. When people suffer from sub-standard treatment, they need someone on their side to ask serious questions of those who have let them down.
