Hi Folks, I'd really appreciate your thoughts. As I survivor I was relieved to read the information leaflets on UK Sepsis Trust. At the time I couldn't understand why I was having a tough time after beating sepsis and it was through the leaflets I got understanding and real comfort. My niece gave birth this week and was taking back into hospital a day after leaving. She had an urine infection and sepsis. Fortunately the ambulance people administered antibiotics immediately and now 2 days later sepsis isn't a threat and they have taken her off one antibiotic. Are the leaflets a good thing when sepsis wasn't severe, (my view as I was in hospital for 8 weeks including HDU) and she is likely returning home after only 5 days? Reading again the leaflets they inform across all levels of sepsis but do tend to be relevant most for severe sepsis and I'm worried I will be feeding her fears of something that might not happen. So when is the best time to give the information if at all? Thanks, Mark
