Review for Sepsis Alliance, San Diego, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I read the survivors' stories with much interest as my mom died unexpectedly of septic shock. My heart goes out to them. My husband and I are both college educated professionals, well-respected and established in our community. But we were unaware of the symptoms of sepsis and trusted the medical professionals with mom's care. Unfortunately, the system let mom down and we lost her. I think there are still many medical professionals who don't fully understand and recognize the indications of sepsis, and there are still hospitals without effective sepsis protocols in place. This is especially true in small towns with mediocre staff. We still have a lot of questions regarding how and why mom died, but it is a great comfort to us to have the Sepsis Alliance readily available to assist.
