A partner in our clinical negligence department, recovered damages of £15,000.00 on behalf of Mr P who developed a skin sore on his left heel following admission to hospital with a broken leg.

Mr P was at high risk of developing pressure damage as he was elderly, diabetic and immobile due to the fracture. Nevertheless the hospital staff failed to provide a pressure relieving mattress and to ensure that he was turned regularly.
