£96,950 awarded to a claimant for substandard care resulting in a sacral pressure sore

Hospital staff failed to wash him properly and failed to mobilise him adequately. By the time he was discharged from hospital he developed a pressure sore which was approx. 4 x 4 inches on his lower back.

The sore delayed his recovery from illness and he required 18 months of treatment before it finally resolved.
