Sepsis Infections

Orange County Sepsis Injury Lawyers

What Is Sepsis?

Also known as “septicemia,” sepsis is a deadly complication that can occur when you are being treated for an infection. It happens when a medication or other chemical treatment being used to fight the infection sets off a severe negative reaction, which can develop into septic shock. In the beginning, sepsis often manifests itself in the following symptoms:

  • High heart rate of at least 90 beats per minute (BPM) and heart pain
  • High internal temperature of at least 101 degrees Fahrenheit
  • Minimal or infrequent urination
  • Pain in the chest or abdomen
  • Altered mental status

Sepsis infections typically result in inflated medical costs, time off work, additional pain, suffering, and health complications, and more. Depending on the severity and development of a sepsis infection, it can even cost you your life. Regardless of the extent of a sepsis infection, it almost always requires costly treatments and diagnostic tests, including MRIs, CT scans, IV medications, surgery, and more.

How Do Sepsis Infections Occur?

Sepsis infections typically develop during a period of hospitalization, however short. Sometimes these life-threatening infections occur because of the negligence of a doctor, nurse, or hospital. They can also happen as a result of defective medical equipment, putting the manufacturer or designer at fault for the infection.

Any of the following can contribute to the development of a sepsis infection:

  • Poorly cleaned medical tools
  • Failure to wash hands appropriately and often
  • Improper administration of IV medication
  • Inadequate maintenance or cleanliness of a hospital
  • Unsanitary water supply
