Department of Health officials in Orange County also reported a CRE outbreak at a local nursing home in 2011. According to the Department of Health, two CRE-infected patients were sent to a long-term acute care hospital. However, the nursing home would not comply with state investigators which left the investigation incomplete.

The names of the facilities involved were not available.

According to data.medicare.gov, between 2012 and 2013, nearly 600 cases of hospital-acquired infections were reported in Duval County hospitals. Victims suffered from C.Diff, MRSA and other infections that can be life-threatening.

In Orange County, during that same time period, more than 480 observed cases of healthcare associated infections were reported as well.

Have you or someone you know suffered from a hospital-acquired infection while receiving medical care in Duval or Orange County? Victims of negligent healthcare workers and facilities may be entitled to compensation for their pain and suffering.

At Gordon & Partners, we believe that the healthcare facilities who have exposed their patients to these deadly infections need to be held accountable for their actions. We can help you obtain the justice you deserve.
