Hospital Infection Lawyers in Detroit & Southfield Michigan

Infections that occur during hospital stays are all too prevalent in Michigan and across the country. The Center for Disease Control (CDC) estimates that roughly 1.7 million patients suffer from hospital-acquired infections each year, and another 100,000 infection-related deaths.

Hospital infections can cause severe pneumonia, meningitis, sepsis, urinary tract infections, and other illnesses. Other strains and varieties such as Methicillin Resistant Staph Aureus (MRSA) frequently make certain infections difficult to treat, resulting in additional pain, suffering, and risk to the patient’s health.

Treatment for Infections

Many hospital-acquired infections are preventable and, when treated quickly with the appropriate antibiotics, can be cured. But when a patient acquires an infection that goes undiagnosed and untreated for too long, sepsis and septic shock can set in and cause serious injury or death. Similarly, an infection of the spine can lead to a condition called bacterial meningitis which, if not quickly diagnosed and treated, can lead to permanent neurological impairments or death. It is critical that the necessary testing, diagnosis, care and treatment be provided to patients as soon as possible.
