Important information for when you get home

Important information for when you get home

Before you're discharged a member of your healthcare team should give you, and (if appropriate) your family or carers, information about sepsis. They should talk to you about:

  • what to do if you keep feeling unwell

  • important signs to look out for that might mean your infection is getting worse, so you can get help quickly

  • what support is available after you get home.

If you're not given any information you should ask your healthcare team for this before you leave. It's very important that you and your family or carers know what to look for and what to do if you become unwell again.
