WASHINGTON, Aug. 15, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- The Nursing Home Complaint Center is calling upon the family of a victim of sepsis, septic shock, broken bones or severe physical abuse to call them anytime at 866-714-6466 if these potentially-life threatening injuries occurred at a nursing home. The group believes preventable sepsis, septic shock, unnecessary broken bones, and even vicious assaults happen to nursing-home patients and the family members of the are rarely told the truth or the facts that caused the injury in the first place. Typically, a family of a nursing home patient learns about a potentially fatal sepsis infection or a severe injury from a hospital ER physician-not the nursing home.
The Nursing Home Complaint Center is urging the family members of a nursing home patient with sepsis or severe abuse to not waste their time trying to call the state or local government agencies, because in most instances these-taxpayer funded agencies don't care or these types of situations are not in the government agencies job description.
"If your loved one who was at a nursing home is now in a hospital ICU because of sepsis or severe abuse involving broken bones or a physical assault please call us at the Nursing Home Complaint Center at 866-714-6466. At a minimum, we will try to get attorneys involved so the family hopefully can get compensated for the potential wrongdoing. http://NursingHomeComplaintCenter.Com
The types of severe injuries the Nursing Home Complaint Center is focused on:
- A sepsis infection that originated at a nursing home that resulted in a loved one's death. The death certificate should include sepsis as the cause of death or one of the contributing causes of death.
- Broken bones that resulted when a nursing home patient had a severe fall. Broken bones should not happen at a nursing home.
- A severe beating or assault where the nursing home patient is now being treated at a hospital by medical doctors who can confirm the injuries were a result of some type of physical assault.
The Nursing Home Complaint Center believes that nursing home short staffing is one of the leading causes of a nursing home's patient getting sepsis, severe injuries or for wrongful deaths. If a nursing home is not properly staffed it probably is impossible for the facility to maintain their patients. A short-staffed nursing home can literally be in any US State such as California, New York, New Jersey, Florida, Texas, Massachusetts, Maryland, Rhode Island, Virginia, Ohio, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Tennessee, North Carolina, Georgia, Mississippi, Louisiana, Missouri, Illinois, Indiana, Wisconsin, Minnesota, North Dakota, Nebraska, Colorado, Utah, Arizona, Idaho, Nevada, Washington, or Alaska as the Nursing Home Complaint Center would like to discuss anytime at 800-714-0303. http://NursingHomeComplaintCenter.Com
