Hospital chain under investigation

A Southern California hospital chain is being investigated by California and Federal authorities for an unusually high rate of life-threatening infections among its older patients. Officials are trying to determine if this high rate of septicemia infections is a serious health problem or multi-million dollar Medicare fraud. The investigation began when lawmakers reviewed questionable Medicare billings - about $2.8 million worth of expenses. 

Septicemia, better known as blood poisoning, is found in hospitals with improper procedures for infection control. It is sometimes difficult to treat and can be deadly. Medicare pays hospitals more money to treat septicemia. This can result in hospitals filing 'false claims.'

If you have a loved one that has developed septicemia or has died from it, contact an experienced Personal Injury attorney who will investigate for you. You may be able to file a wrongful death lawsuit.
