On a recent visit to my aunt's nursing home the nurse talked to me about a bedsore on my aunt's back. The nurse said it was common and that they were taking steps to deal with the sore and make sure (as best they could) that she did not get others. I've never had any issues with this nursing home and I've been happy with my aunt's care. But is that considered negligence or malpractice that they allowed the sore to develop in the first place?
