Sepsis and bacteremia are medical conditions of the blood stream that results when a severe bacterial or fungal infection gets into the blood stream. In many cases, sepsis and other hospital infections are preventable by ensuring sterile conditions and proper treatment of open wounds and sores.
Sepsis and other bacterial infections sometimes occur in nursing home and hospital patients who lack proper medical care and treatment for bedsores and cuts. For example, if your elderly loved one begins to exhibit bedsores after living in a nursing home or undergoing medical treatment in a hospital, get them the required medical treatment immediately.
There should be no place for neglect in our nursing homes or hospital rooms. The personal injury attorneys of Dorian, Goldstein, Wisniewski & Orchinik, P.C., stand ready to help fight for improved conditions and full money damages.
Some symptoms of sepsis and bacterial blood infections include:
- Fever, chills and severe shaking
- Rapid heartbeat and breathing
- Agitation, disorientation and confused reaction to normal environment
- Skin rash, reddish skin discoloration, swelling
- Difficulty urinating
- Pain in ankles, knees and other joints
