CLAYTON, Mo. (AP) — A Jefferson County man has been awarded nearly $900,000 after developing a bedsore while being treated at St. Anthony's Medical Center in St. Louis County. A judge awarded $883,000 to 65-year-old William Dieser of Hillsboro. He was admitted to St. Anthony's in 2008 for surgery to address a pancreatic cyst. Two days later, it was discovered that a pressure ulcer reached to the bone. He incurred $33,000 in additional medical bills to repair the sore.
