Date:12/4/2012

(PRWEB) December 04, 2012

The Nursing Home Complaint Center is strongly urging family members, or loved ones of nursing home, or rehabilitation center residents to be on the lookout for the telltale signs of nursing home, or rehabilitation center neglect, or abuse. The group says, "At the top of our list are untreated bed sores, or pressure ulcers that evolve into sepsis, or septic shock. If you get a call from a hospital ER, that your parent has been sent to the hospital from the nursing home or rehab center, we want the family to ask the attending physician if sepsis, or septic shock indicated. If the answer is yes. please call us immediately at 866-714-6466, and we will instantly get national caliber law firms involved." http://NursingHomeComplaintCenter.Com

Severe Medical Conditions that could develop in a nursing home, or rehabilitation center because of neglect, or abuse from the Nursing Home Complaint Center:

  • Sepsis: infection in blood stream due to bedsores/ ulcers (Resident my also display altered mental status);
  • Septic Shock: Sepsis with refractory hypotension and perfusion abnormalities (ex. Lactic acidosis, oliguria, alteration in mental status);
  • Severe Sepsis: infection in the blood stream causing one or more of the following: 1.) Organ Dysfunction; 2.) Hypoperfusion (ex. Lactic acidosis, oliguria, alteration in mental status)
  • Bed Sores also known as Decubitis Ulcers. These are pressure ulcers that began during the stay at the Nursing Home.

The Nursing Home Complaint Center is focused on nursing home, or rehab center patients that have been diagnosed with sepsis, septic shock, and or pressure sores/pressure ulcers. The group is urging states to get much more aggressive in monitoring their nursing homes, and is encouraging states to begin unannounced inspections-especially at night when nursing home staffing levels are frequently woefully insufficient. Again, the Nursing Home Complaint Center is encouraging the adult children of a nursing home patient, who is now either dead, or in a hospital ICU to ask the attending physician at the hospital if sepsis, of septic shock is indicated? If the answer from the physician is yes-please call the Nursing Home Complaint Center immediately at 866-714-6466. http://NursingHomeComplaintCenter.Com
