Sepsis

What Is Sepsis?“Sepsis is the body’s overwhelming and life-threatening response to infection that can lead to tissue damage, organ failure, and death.” – The Sepsis Foundation. Sepsis is serious and kills nearly 300,000 Americans every year.

Medical professionals have been debating the exact definition of sepsis for decades. However, one thing they can agree upon is the origin of the disease. The word sepsis comes from the Greek meaning “decay” or “to putrefy.” In medical terms, sepsis is defined as either “the presence of pathogenic organisms or their toxins in the blood or tissues” or “the poisoned condition resulting from the presence of pathogens or their toxins as in septicemia.”[1]

Do You Suspect Your Loved One Has Developed Sepsis?If you suspect your loved one has developed sepsis during the course of their residence in an assisted living facility, nursing home, or other occupational facility, first contact emergency services and tell them you suspect sepsis, then contact an experienced nursing home injury lawyer. At Hughey Law Firm, we have the experience and resources to help you and your loved one get the justice you both deserve. We have developed a network of medical and nursing professionals and experienced investigators who are ready to research and document every aspect of your case and help establish any potential liability of your loved one’s caregivers and the corporate owners and insurers of the facility. Allowing a resident to become septic does not meet the high standard of care your loved one deserves or that the law requires. If you suspect sepsis, contact us online or call 843-881-8644 for a free consultation of your case.
