My mother told me on the phone today that she has a bed sore. Is this due to neglect on the part of the caregivers? She did tell me that the nurse is taking care of the sore. But I wonder if neglect caused it?
The hard part is over.
I'm matching you with one of our specialists who will be calling you in the next few minutes.
You need to contact the DON and make sure its being taken care of by a Nursed versed in woundcare. Some of our elderly call the CNAs nurses and they aren't. Tell the DON u want and update on how the wound is progressing. Ask for pictures so u can see the progress.
