This case involves a 23-year-old female patient who was treated at a wound care clinic for several open arm wounds. The bandages were described as foul-smelling and greenish-blue in color, and she had developed clear signs of infection. The clinic obtained cultures of the wounds, however preliminary results came back as negative. The wound care clinic referred the patient to her primary care physician. The primary care physician noted a diffuse rash but did not suspect infection because the wound clinic did not send a follow up regarding the final culture report. Several days later, the patient went into septic shock from a bacterial infection. The patient was unable to recover and succumbed to the sepsis in a few days. It was later discovered that the wound clinic did render a final report and that the bacteria which caused the patient’s infection were present in the report. It was alleged that the primary care physician was negligent in failing to follow up with the wound care clinic regarding the final culture report.
