Case Study: One Small Cut that Killed

Case Study – One Small Cut that Killed

Joe visits the doctor complaining of a small cut and ankle pain on his right leg; he is told to rest and take ibuprofen. Three days later, he is admitted to the emergency room with low blood pressure, a fever, extreme shaking, and an irregular heartbeat. After two days in the ICU, Joe dies.

The family wants answers, and so far, all they know is that he came in with one small cut and suddenly died.
