we want families of nursing home patients to have a standing order with the nursing home that they are to be contacted immediately if bed sores are detected with their loved one

(PRWEB) January 07, 2013

The Nursing Home Complaint Center says, "We are urging the adult children, or loved ones of nursing home, or rehab center patients to be on the lookout for bed sores, and we want families of nursing home patients to have a standing order with the nursing home that they are to be contacted immediately if bed sores are detected with their loved one." Why is the Nursing Home Complaint Center so concerned about bed sores, and nursing home patients? The group says, "We fear thousands of US nursing home patients needlessly die each year because the patient was never properly cleaned, or maintained, and as a result they get bed sores, that evolve into an infection called sepsis, or septic shock, and they die-not typically at the nursing home, but at a hospital-where the nursing home sent the nursing home patient because of their negligence." The Nursing Home Complaint Center is urging family members of a nursing home patient, who has been sent to a hospital ER to ask the attending hospital physicians if sepsis, or septic shock is indicated. If the answer is yes they want the family members, or loved ones to call them immediately at 866-714-6466 so the Nursing Home Complaint Center can get in place a national caliber law firm to help. http://NursingHomeComplaintCenter.Com
