WASHINGTON, Aug. 3, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- The Nursing Home Complaint Center says, "If your family is mourning the loss of your mom or dad because they developed sepsis or septic shock at a nursing home or skilled nursing facility in any state please call us anytime at 866-714-6466 for a conversation about possible compensation. If the nursing home or healthcare facility failed to get medical doctors involved immediately after noticing the sepsis the death of your loved one could potentially be a wrongful death and we want you to get compensated if this is what has happened." http://NursingHomeComplaintCenter.Com
What is sepsis? Sepsis is the result of an infection, and causes drastic changes in the body. It can be very dangerous and potentially life-threatening. It occurs when chemicals that fight infection by triggering inflammatory reactions are released into the bloodstream. Doctors have identified three stages of sepsis:
- Sepsis is when the infection reaches the bloodstream and causes inflammation in the body.
- Severe sepsis is when the infection is severe enough to affect the function of your organs, such as the heart, brain, and kidneys.
- Septic shock is when you experience a significant drop in blood pressure that can lead to respiratory or heart failure, stroke, failure of other organs, and death.
The Nursing Home Complaint Center is convinced thousands of nursing home patients needlessly die each year in the United States because they developed sepsis. In many to most situations involving sepsis the nursing home's staff failed to properly clean their patient. When they mention 'clean' they mean-change the patient's diaper when needed and as frequently as possible. If the patient is frail or unable to properly clean themselves and their dirty diapers are not changed regularly-the patient will probably develop an infection that could evolve very quickly into sepsis and the patient could die.
According to the Nursing Home Complaint Center, "The typical family member we talk to was just called by a hospital notifying them that a nursing home had sent their loved one to their ER and the loved one is now in the hospital's intensive care unit. In most instances, the family member had either recently seen or spoke to their loved one and they were under the impression all was well. Most people we talk to have never heard of sepsis before. If your loved one was or is a patient at a nursing home or skilled nursing facility and they have developed sepsis please call us at 866-714-6466. Typically, the admitting physician at the hospital can frequently be able to tell if the sepsis is too advanced to have gone unnoticed at the nursing home as we would like to discuss." http://NursingHomeComplaintCenter.Com
