Hi there,
I am am sorry that you lost your mother.
You can make a claim, but I wouldn't. The hospital will most probably be able to proof that they took precautions against bed sores. It is a sad but normal fact that they often develop nevertheless.
If the staff didn't do wrong, you would lose the claim.
I would not burden my soul with a claim. It costs money and peace of mind and often doesn't achieve anything.
I wish you all the best!
