Post-sepsis syndrome: Surviving sepsis may only be the first step

You may not even remember much about your stay in the intensive care unit. You may have woken up in a normal hospital room to find that your stay in the ICU gave you a life-threatening case of sepsis. Doctors may have told you that they treated you for this severe and potentially terminal infection and the danger has passed.

Hospitals are full of potentially deadly infections

Few people like to go to the hospital, and if you've ever been to a hospital either visiting or as a patient, you might have feared that you could get sick just from being there.

The source of such infections could come from exposure to a patient, unsanitary conditions or unsterile equipment.
