Postoperative Infections in Fresno
Fresno Medical Malpractice Lawyers for Postoperative Infections
If you have suffered from a postoperative infection, you are not alone. The US Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that over 500,000 people are affected by postoperative infections every year. In some of these cases postoperative infection would have been preventable if the attending surgeon or health care professional had provided more diligent care before, during, and after the surgery. If a surgeon or physician is negligent in providing postoperative and follow-up care, they could be putting you at increased risk of developing a postoperative infection or complication. These may include:
- Infection of bed sores from lack of mobility and mismanaged follow-up care
- Peritonitis and intraabdominal infections
- Pneumonia and other nosocomial infections
- Resistant and opportunistic pathogens
- Surgical site infection
If you believe that negligent care immediately following surgery might have been a factor in the injury, severe complication, or death of a loved one, it's important to seek representation from a Fresno medical malpractice lawyer as soon as possible.
