Our nursing home neglect lawyers represent patients and residents who develop bed sores and pressure sores while in the skilled nursing care facility. Most often, these conditions develop because the nursing home staff failed to take the necessary precautions to prevent the pressure sore in the first place. Many residents are at high risk for developing bed sores due to a number of conditions and nursing staff is required to assess the patient and formulate a care plan to prevent a pressure sore.
Bed sores and pressure sores that are not timely identified and go untreated can lead to a sepsis infection. Sepsis is a severe illness in which the bloodstream is overwhelmed by bacteria. A nursing patient resident is more susceptible to a sepsis infection because their immune systems are worn down. Sepsis can lead to serious medical conditions, including organ shut down, and even death.
Symptoms of Sepsis
Depending on the individual, symptoms of sepsis infection can range. When residents in a nursing home pressure sores, they will often demonstrate sepsis symptoms. Some of these common symptoms include:
- Skin Rash
- Rapid Heartbeat
The nursing home staff, including both doctors and nurses, must identify these symptoms and diagnose the sepsis condition. If untreated or not properly treated, the infection will worsen and cause significant injury or death.
