Death from Sepsis Prompts Wave of New Regulations

Personal Injury New York CityNew York has decided to take the lead and blaze the trail by mandating that its hospitals ardently search for Sepsis (a self-destructive immune response to an infection) in patients. This comes on the heels of a 12 year-old boy who passed away from Sepsis in Queens, New York in April of 2012. New York’s action has been lauded by health experts and researchers across the country who have been working tirelessly to persuade the federal government to adopt similarly stringent measures. Being a leading cause of death in hospitals, Sepsis typically evolves into severely low blood pressure, shock and even organ failure in more extreme cases.

A global consortium of doctors, health advocates and researchers have been compiling guidelines on how to identify Sepsis early on in addition to treatment methods, which has led to large decreases in mortality rates. New Jersey unfortunately has some of the highest levels of Sepsis related deaths.

Stakes May be High But Sepsis is Hard to Identify

Due to the fact that Sepsis has such common early indicators, such as high pulse rates and fevers, it is very difficult to conclude that someone is at-risk for Sepsis from the onset. Fortunately, if Sepsis can be caught before it progresses, a strong regiment of antibiotics and fluids have shown to decrease the relative risk of mortality by up to 40%, according to Dr. Mitchell M. Levy, a professor at Brown University School of Medicine and lead author of a paper on the most recent sepsis treatment guidelines, set to be published in the Critical Care Medicine Journal in addition to Europe in Intensive Care Medicine. Given how common this infection is and how unprepared states have proven to be in preventing Sepsis, it is important that you know exactly what you can do legally to make sure that any and all parties are held responsible in the event of a Sepsis infection.

A few years ago I was misdiagnosed and nearly ended up becoming a quadriplegic. Three spinal fusions followed. I asked my sister, a top D.C. lawyer, to find the name of the best personal injury lawyer in NYC, and I was referred to Jeff Korek of... Gersowitz Libo and Korek. It was a tough time for me, but Jeff and Irene were great and helped me through it every step of the way. They were compassionate, understanding and very accommodating, yet professional and always with their fingers on the pulse. They really care about the welfare of their clients, and not just money driven. When I was unable to travel, Jeff came to me, and I live an hour from the city. This firm is well known, well established, and has earned the respect and credibility among its peers. I highly recommend the firm of Gersowitz Libo and Korek without hesitation and, in fact, I already have. My thanks go out to the entire team for a better than expected outcome!!! They get a 5 out of 5 stars from me!!read more
