California Girl Dies From Deadly Infection After Being Misdiagnosed With Flu - Blogged by: @RaquelHarrisTV ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ A 12-year-old California girl lost her life after her mother said a doctor misdiagnosed a deadly infection with the flu. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ On Dec. 17, Alyssa Alcaraz died in Kaweah Delta Medical Center in Visalia, California, from an infection called sepsis which kills more than 250,000 Americans a year. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This comes only days after a doctor told her family that she had influenza, prescribed her ibuprofen and instructed her to rest for 10 days at home. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ "For her, it wasn't even [the flu]. It was just three days and she was dead," Keila Lino Alcaraz, the girl’s mother, told ABC News ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ However, according to Alyssa’s death certificate officials from Tulare County say she died from cardiac arrest and septic shock, which is the body’s extreme response to an infection. "Sepsis can rapidly cause tissue damage, organ failure and death," according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Alyssa’s mother says she won’t take any legal action but she hopes medical officials will develop tests for rare cases like Alyssa’s to prevent misdiagnosing other patients. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ "I have mixed emotions. I know doctors and clinics are so overwhelmed with flu cases right now. My thing is, yeah, I could point fingers, but as a mother, I missed it, too," she said.: California Girl Dies From Deadly Infection After Being Misdiagnosed With Flu @balleralert California Girl Dies From Deadly Infection After Being Misdiagnosed With Flu - Blogged by: @RaquelHarrisTV ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ A 12-year-old California girl lost her life after her mother said a doctor misdiagnosed a deadly infection with the flu. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ On Dec. 17, Alyssa Alcaraz died in Kaweah Delta Medical Center in Visalia, California, from an infection called sepsis which kills more than 250,000 Americans a year. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This comes only days after a doctor told her family that she had influenza, prescribed her ibuprofen and instructed her to rest for 10 days at home. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ "For her, it wasn't even [the flu].
