What is sepsis?

Sepsis is a severe and life-threatening condition during which the immune system causes damage to healthy tissues and organs. Sepsis is an extreme reaction of the body to an infection. It is a medical emergency that needs treating promptly to avoid life-threatening complications such as organ damage, organ failure and can even be fatal. Sepsis is caused by infection and usually starts in the; skin, urinary tract, lung or gastronomical tract.

Usually, sepsis starts with a bacterial infection but can also be caused by viral infections such as; COVID-19. The people who are most likely to get sepsis and face complications from it are, including;

  • People with chronic medical conditions that can affect the immune system, such as; lung disease or diabetes
  • Adults aged 65 or older
  • People with weakened immune systems
  • Sepsis survivors
  • Children under the age of one

The symptoms of sepsis include; fever and shivering, confusion, pain and discomfort, excessive sweating, shortness of breath and high blood pressure. It is extremely essential to be able to diagnose sepsis as soon as possible. If the professional fails to do so, and you faced medical complications due to it, we highly recommend that you contact Solicitors On Your Side now!

How can sepsis be treated negligently?

Identified sepsis needs treating within the first hour of the detected symptoms. If the professional fails to diagnose sepsis in time, it can lead to grave complications that could even be fatal. In most circumstances, if detected early, antibiotics should be given as a treatment for sepsis. However, during a viral infection, antibiotics don’t work, you must wait for your immune system to start tackling the virus. During more pressing circumstances, you may need more severe treatments like blood transfusions. There is a range of things that are considered negligent during the diagnosis and treatment of sepsis, including:

  • Failing to diagnose sepsis on time, leading to delayed treatment and severe complications
  • Misdiagnosis of sepsis, which can lead to incorrect treatment and further complications
  • Failing to provide the correct treatment
  • Providing treatment in a negligent way
  • Refusing to provide treatment at all
