Nursing Home Complaint Center Urges All Family Members of US Nursing Home Patients to be on the Lookout for Sepsis or Septic Shock
The Nursing Home Complaint Center says, “Regrettably, we are convinced the number one indicator of severe nursing home neglect or abuse in the United States are repeated occurrences of a specific type of infection called sepsis, or septic shock, and we desperately need family members or loved ones to wise up, and keep records and journals about the condition of a loved one in any US nursing home, as long as they are there.” The group says, “Repeated issues related to sepsis or septic shock probably means your loved one or family member is not being cleaned up, and if it’s happening frequently, we want to know about it. Sepsis or septic shock could very easily kill your loved one prematurely.” For more information please call the Nursing Home Complaint Center at 866-714-6466, or contact the group via its web site at http://NursingHomeComplaintCenter.Com.

The Nursing Home Complaint Center is the premier advocate for US nursing home patients, and the group is expanding its 2011 US Nursing Home Elder Abuse, and Elder Neglect Initiatives to include more information about sepsis, or septic shock. The group says, “Can you imagine lying in urine-soaked clothing or soiled clothing for hours, or even a day? We fear this is happening to literally tens of thousands of US nursing home patients each day, and if lack of treatment issues are not addressed, the loved one, Mom, or Dad will die from this.” The group says, “We think repeated sepsis or septic shock should immediately sound alarm bells for a loved one,or family member, and if these infections continue, or the loved one is constantly being shipped to a hospital ER or intensive care unit, we think its an incredibly bad sign, and we want to know about it.” For more information, loved ones of family members of a nursing home patient who are constantly dealing with sepsis or septic shock should call the Nursing Home Complaint Center at 866-714-6466, or contact the group via their web site at http://NursingHomeComplaintCenter.Com.
The Nursing Home Complaint Center says, “One of the biggest issues for current US nursing home patients is short staffing, and/or staffing with people who do not want to do their critically important job of keeping their patients clean and sanitary.” They say, “What terrifies us the most is family members or loved ones do not understand that if their loved one is constantly being shipped to a hospital’s ER or ICU, it may mean the nursing home failed to do their job.” The group says, “If sepsis or septic shock is a nonstop problem with a loved one in a nursing home, we want to know about it, and we will do our best to get some help and justice for the victim and their loved ones.” For more information please call the Nursing Home Complaint Center anytime at 866-714-6466, or contact the group via their web site at http://NursingHomeComplaintCenter.Com.
