Healthcare Associated Infections

According to the Center for Disease Control and Population (“CDC”), as many as 1 in 25 patients contracts at least one healthcare associated infection on any given day.Whether the result of a dirty needle or contamination otherwise present in the room, infections contracted in an urgent or primary care facility or hospital can be life altering or even deadly.  Sadly, infections sustained as a result of contamination occur on a daily basis.

Healthcare associated infections can be acquired any place where healthcare is received to include hospitals, outpatient facilities, primary care facilities, and even a nursing home. Statistically, this led to an estimated 722,000 patient healthcare related infections in 2011 alone.  This costs the United States healthcare system billions of dollars each year and leads to tens of thousands of healthcare associated deaths.

Common Healthcare Associated Infections Include:

  • Staphylococcus aureau, commonly known as staff infection,
  • Methicillin-resistent Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA),
  • Mycobacterium abscessus,
  • Gram-negative bacteria,
  • Klebsiella, and
  • Vancomycin-intermediate Staphylococcus aureus and Vancomycin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus.

Preventing HealthCare Associated Infection

The number of healthcare related infections can be reduced by simple efforts such as hand washing and hand sanitation. As a patient, there is nothing wrong with insisting that your healthcare provider wash and sanitize his or her hands before and after treating you.

Compensation for Victims Who Contract a Healthcare Related Infection

You trust your doctor to provide safe and effective medical treatment. When something goes wrong and you contract a healthcare associated infection, the injuries sustained can be life threatening or even deadly.  Not surprisingly, healthcare related infections including MRSA are resistant to the antibiotics commonly used to treat an ordinary staph infection. When a healthcare related injury such as MRSA is sustained, victims potentially face deadly consequences including bacteremia or sepsis, pneumonia, endocarditis, osteomyelitis, invasive surgery, amputation, or even death.

What Our Clients Say

They truly care
Mrs Vallery, who answered the phone took more care and attention to detail than any other law office, that I have called, in 2 years+. She diligently took notes to give to the lawyers and cared about my situation and let me actually tell everything without cutting me short. Out of over 100 law offices, this is rare treatment. Care. Consideration. That means more than anything going through this…
Professional Representation, Satisfying Legal Outcome!
My wife and I retained Bakari Sellers to represent our son in a case in Richland County. We found Mr. Sellers, his assistant Stephanie, and the rest of the staff at Strom, extremely courteous and professional. We really appreciated Mr. Sellers’ straightforward and honest approach. We believe this is a very competent law firm, and are satisfied with the legal outcome they achieved. We would highly recommend them!

From Self-Representation to Victory in SSDI Case!
My experience with Mario and his staff was outstanding. When everyone said to give up my case with SSDI and after being poorly represented and losing. I had to file my own appeals and represent myself. I literally called every attorney in the book. Then I called Mario cold – I expected one more no! Well, this gentleman took my case and won. He knows the law and cares a lot. I am proud to call him my friend. If you need a professional to help you, call these guys.

A Lifesaver in the Courtroom, Ensuring Freedom with A1 Professionalism
Needed a lifesaver. I had gotten myself into a bad situation and the possibility of going to prison. Through the diligence and hard work done by attorney Alley B., I was able to walk out of that courtroom a free man. No tricks just hard down attorney work. She was an A1 professional and knew every inch of the Law pertaining to my case. For that, I am forever grateful.
A Winning Team at Strom Law Firm!
John Alphin was great. We basically worked together for 22 months. Bakari Sellers was also on the team and together those 2 guys were fabulous. Won the case and I’m still a client of Strom law firm. Thank you and awesome law firm.
