The Oliver Law Group P.C. is urging all victims of Pseudomonas aeruginosa infections allegedly caused by Non-Sterile Other-Sonic Ultrasound Transmission Gel to contact the Firm today to learn more about their options for legal recourse. Other-Sonic ultrasound gel was recalled by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) in March 2012, after the product was linked to a 2011 outbreak of Pseudomonas aeruginosa at William Beaumont Hospital in Royal Oak, Michigan. While victims of this outbreak may be entitled to compensation for their medical bills, pain and suffering, and other damages, it is important that they act immediately. The statute of limitations on these claims may run out in the next two months, and those who have not already done so will be time-barred from seeking legal recourse.

The Oliver Law Group is already representing a number of William Beaumont Hospital patients who were allegedly sickened by non-sterile Other-Sonic ultrasound gel. Most recently in 2014, the Firm filed a, Pseudomonas Infection Other-Sonic Ultrasound Gel Beaumont Hospital Lawsuit complaint in Michigan’s Oakland County Circuit Court on behalf of two such patients that accuses the hospital of failing to exercise reasonable care in selecting an ultrasound transmission gel to be used during the plaintiffs’ treatment at the facility. The pseudomonas Other-Sonic ultrasound gel lawsuit further alleges that the plaintiffs’ Pseudomonas infections, as well as their resulting pain, suffering and mental anguish, were the direct result of the hospital’s decision to use the non-sterile Other-Sonic ultrasound gel product.

Pseudomonas Outbreak at William Beaumont Hospital
In 2011, 16 patients who had undergone a transesophageal ultrasound probe at William Beaumont Hospital developed Pseudomonas infections. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the illnesses were ultimately linked to contaminated bottles of Other-Sonic, the ultrasound gel used during the procedures.

FDA Other-Sonic ultrasound gel recall
In March 2012, the FDA announced a Class I recall for the Other-Sonic ultrasound gel. A Class I recall is the FDA’s most serious type of recall, and indicates that a medical product poses a risk of serious injury or death.
(fda.gov/MedicalDevices/Safety/ListofRecalls/ucm306149.htm, FDA, March 2012)

According to the CDC, an estimated 51,000 healthcare-associated Pseudomonas aeruginosa infections occur in the U.S. each year. More than 6,000 (13%) of these are multidrug-resistant, with roughly 400 deaths per year attributed to these infections. The bacteria can be spread on the hands of healthcare workers or by equipment that gets contaminated and is not properly cleaned. The most serious Pseudomonas infections usually occur in people in the hospital and/or with weakened immune systems. According to the CDC, the bacteria may cause infections of the blood, pneumonia and death in this patient population.
