Patient Education

Recommendation

  • Give patients who are at-risk of developing sepsis post-discharge information about the signs of sepsis and clear instructions about when they need to seek medical care.
  • Give patients and families who have been diagnosed with sepsis materials about the condition so they know what it is and what to expect.

Rationale

  • Patients have a very limited understanding of sepsis.
