Hello! My sister had surgery and a few days later she got a bedsore while she was still in CVICU. She had trouble knowing when she needed to have a BM and so she would accidentally have one. I called the nurse to come and help and the nurse told me that she would have to wait for someone to help her (the nurse) and that she (the nurse) thought my sister was doing it on purpose! So my sister had to lay in that mess which of course got into the bedsore which of course got infected. This happened about 2 years ago and I don't know if I have any recourse or not. My sister passed away in Feb 2005 from all the infections she kept getting. Any advice from anyone? Thanks! ChrisS
