Understanding Sepsis and the Causes of Sepsis

A patient suffers from sepsis when his immunity overwhelms the body when fighting an infection. When you have an infection, chemicals are released in the blood. These fight the infection. However, an overwhelming response to this infection can lead to inflammation. Inflammation later leads to organ damage. Patients can also suffer from blood clots during sepsis. This leads to a reduction of blood to the limbs and organs. When the organs are deprived of oxygen and nutrients, they start to fail.

With continued emphasis on deficient care and nursing homecare abuses, statistics on reported cases have continued to hike. Some studies have revealed that it may be hard to determine if the number goes up due to increase of abuse or it is because of more reports that have been made after public campaigns.

However, lawyers have been willing to guard the rights of neglected and abused.
