WASHINGTON, Nov. 4, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- The Nursing Home Complaint Center says, "If a family has received word that their loved one who had been at a nursing home has developed sepsis or septic shock and is now in a ICU or dead please call us immediately at 866-714-6466 about possible significant compensation."
The Nursing Home Complaint Center is urging the family of a nursing home patient to call them at 866-714-6466 if they have just received a call from a hospital ER about their loved one being admitted for sepsis, or septic shock, or if their family member has died from sepsis. In most instances sepsis or septic shock are preventable and the Center believes these serious medical conditions frequently occur because of negligence at a nursing home. http://NursingHomeComplaintCenter.Com
The Nursing Home Complaint Center says, "We are trying to prevent a person at a nursing home from getting sepsis, or septic shock because the nursing home staff failed to keep their patient clean, or they failed to treat things like a bed sore. If left untreated a bed sore can easily turn into infections called sepsis, and or septic shock, and sepsis/septic shock can be fatal."
"We are urging all families who have a loved one in a nursing home anywhere in the United States to keep a journal that describes the condition of their loved one the last time they visited them. The journal should include time, date, how their loved one appeared. The journal entry should also include did the nursing home patient/family member appear to be properly cared for? If a loved one who was at a nursing home is now in a hospital ICU, or dead because of sepsis or septic shock their loved ones are urged to call us at 866-714-6466 so we can try to help the family.
"Our help may include attorneys who assist the family members of a nursing home patient who has developed sepsis, or septic shock because negligence. There can be significant compensation for these types of injuries. We want to emphasize this free service is available nationwide and in all states including New York, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, Georgia, Florida, Texas, Ohio, Illinois, Colorado, California, or Washington."
The Nursing Home Complaint Center believes nursing home short staffing is a leading cause of sepsis in the United States, and tragically most people don't realize that sepsis, or septic shock for the most part is preventable. Nursing home short staffing means in all likelihood their patients do not get proper care, and they could develop serious medical conditions like sepsis, or septic shock. http://NursingHomeComplaintCenter.Com
