Superbug Bacteria Introduced into Silvia Aroche, Resulting in Death
May 11, 2015
Southfield, MI (Law Firm Newswire) May 11, 2015 – February 2015 was a deadly month for the UCLA Ronald Reagan Medical Center. More than 179 may have been infected with the potentially deadly bacteria Carbapenem-Resistant Enterobacteriaceae (CRE), leading to two deaths.
“It’s a patients worst nightmare; receiving a deadly infection while in hospital for treatment,” explains Daren Monroe, Litigation Funding Corporation representative. “In this case, Silvia Aroche received multiple treatments, referred to as Endoscopic Retrograde Cholangio-Pancreatoscopy (ERCP) that involved the use of an endoscope being threaded down her throat. That endoscope was contaminated.”
If CRE bacteria reach the bloodstream, the mortality rate runs close to 50 percent. CRE is transmitted by direct contact with skin, contaminated feces or instruments used in hospitals. In the Aroche case, the family of the deceased is suing the endoscope maker, Olympus Corp., for fraud and negligence in selling a defective medical device that many considered to be extremely difficult to clean, even if they followed manufacturer’s recommended instructions.
Aroche was 41-years-old at the time of her death. The lawsuit filed by her husband states she “suffered significant injury and died.” This was not the first lawsuit filed against the medical device maker.
Doctors subjected Silvia Aroche to numerous tests and she ended up being in the hospital longer than anticipated. As she took a turn for the worse and succumbed to her nosocomial infection, the hospital charges increased. When she died, her husband had funeral and burial expenses to handle in addition to the medical fees.
Aroche’s husband may wish to look into applying for a lawsuit loan from a litigation funding company in order to take care of his expenses as soon as possible. Pre-settlement funding would go directly to his bank account once the litigation funding company he approached approved him. To apply, he needs to be working with an attorney of record. He also should be able to provide a verbal summary of his case, and any documentation that may be required to approve the lawsuit loan.
“Plaintiffs in a position to apply for pre-settlement funding have been through a horrific time trying to deal with the illness and sudden death of a loved one or a sudden, unexpected wrongful death,” says Monroe. “When they call the litigation funding company, they are treated with the greatest of respect and a representative will walk them through the application process, ensuring they understand what pre-settlement funding means.”
Plaintiffs are not required to pay anything to apply for a lawsuit loan and are not required to pay anything monthly either. If a plaintiff does lose their case in court, they may keep the lawsuit loan, without any strings attached.
