Danville Sepsis Lawyers
Nursing homes abuse is a tragic but apparent issue across the Danville area. Although we treat our elderly friends and family with the compassion and respect that they deserve, many nursing home facilities employ over-worked and poorly trained staff that neglect and mistreat their patients. One of the most severe infections that nursing home abuse can cause is sepsis. Sepsis occurs when bacteria enters the body through open wounds, IV lines, or catheters. Negligent nursing home staff can increase the risk of sepsis by failing to monitor their patient, not treating bed sores, and not aiding in the hygiene of clients that need special assistance.
At Spiros Law, P.C., we understand the importance of keeping our elderly loved ones healthy and happy. We expect professional and compassionate staff to tend to our family when we entrust them to the care of nursing home facilities. Anything less should not be tolerated.
Symptoms of Sepsis
Sepsis is one of the most severe signs of nursing home abuse. The most common symptoms of a sepsis infection include the following:
- Decreased Urine Output
- Change in Mental Status
- Difficulty Breathing
- Abnormal Heart Pumping Function
- Abdominal Pain
- Decrease in Platelet Count
As you age, the immune system weakens and, as such, elderly nursing home residents are at greater risk of septic shock when the first signs go unnoticed. At Spiros Law, P.C., our priority is the safety and security of your elderly loved ones. Do not hesitate to seek justice when nursing home staff put your friends and family in danger.
