Woman Suffers Mechanical Skin Sheer Injury

A woman filed a medical malpractice complaint against her hospital after she claims to have suffered a mechanical skin sheer injury when a nurse negligently pulled a bed sheet that had adhered to her buttocks from under her.

She also claims the nurses should have known she was prone to injury due to her surgical pain, being on medication, decreased mobility, and age-related skin changes.
