Of all the liabilities that nursing homes face, few compare to the magnitude of Bed Sore or Decubitus Ulcer liability. Bed Sores are a symptom of a systematic failure in many nursing homes . . . poor care. Nearly all nursing home abuse or negligence cases involve some form of bed sore or pressure sore development.
Nursing home abuse of the elderly takes many forms; it can be physical, emotional, financial, and even sexual. Nearly one-third of all nursing homes have been cited for actual nursing home abuse. My partner Samuel C. Rumph wrote an interesting article regarding this topic.
In Georgia, if you get in a wreck, the at-fault driver pays. In Florida, if you get in a wreck, you pay, regardless of fault. The Florida system is called no-fault insurance. This disparity can cause tremendous problems for those of us Georgians that enjoy a quiet week in Panama City or a loud week in Daytona Beach, and find that we aren’t paying attention and cause a wreck. (this has never happened to me).
Here is a scenario that plays out daily in America. You were injured in a car wreck, you settled with your insurance company or won a judgment in court, and now you are ready to be paid. Then your attorney says he or she cannot settle because of TRICARE, the Department of Defense health care program.
