According to the Mayo Clinic, “Sepsis is a potentially life-threatening complication of an infection. Sepsis occurs when chemicals released into the bloodstream to fight the infection trigger inflammation throughout the body. This inflammation can trigger a cascade of changes that can damage multiple organ systems, causing them to fail. If sepsis progresses to septic shock, blood pressure drops dramatically, which may lead to death.” According to the Nursing Home Complaint Center, “Based on years of experience the typical victim we hear about was never properly cleaned, or maintained at a nursing home, or a rehab center, the patient developed bed sores that were never treated, and the patient ultimately developed an infection called sepsis, it was not treated, and the patient died. In most cases we hear about, the victim was sent to a hospital ER after it was too late to do much for the patient.
