Can I sue Michigan hospital for failure to treat sepsis?

Yes, you can sue Michigan hospital for failure to treat sepsis.  Physicians and nurses are trained to know the symptoms and signs of sepsis.  When a patient is suspected to have sepsis, the physician or nurse must act promptly in ordering appropriate tests and initiation proper medical care. The failure to recognize the condition and failure to treat sepsis can have serious, even deadly consequences to the patient.   The major symptoms of septic shock include abnormal body temperatures, rapid heart rate, high blood pressure, pain, and shortness of breath. The condition can be diagnosed with blood tests and kidney function tests.  If you or a family member suffer serious injuries or have lost a loved one due to the hospital’s failure to treat sepsis, you may have means for a medical malpractice lawsuit against the Michigan hospital.
