What if you have a bedsore that has not healed in 4 months?

Question Details: I have been treated for a bedsore for over 4 months. I am currently being seen by a wound care nurse from the visiting nurses association. The sore was recently debrided by a doctor but is still painful. I received stitches and there is an opening in the wound for draining. I was seen at a nursing home starting 4 months ago for the wound. Nothing was done at the nursing home about the wound. What if any legal action can I pursue?
