86-year old female develops stage IV pressure ulcers due to nursing home neglect

F-86 was admitted to a nursing home facility. While at the nursing home facility, F-86 developed multiple decubitis (pressure) ulcers. Thereafter, F-86 was transferred to a hospital for treatment, wound stabilization, and healing. After the wound(s) healed, F-86 was transferred to another nursing home where she, again, developed Stage 4 decubitis ulceration.
