Are GPs suffering from ‘sepsis fatigue’?


You have to wonder whether they trialled the sepsis alert at all. Imagine an IT whizz coming to the surgery and saying, "look, what do you think of this great new programme I've written - every time you type the word Fever or Deteriorating it stops you typing to flash up a warning that you have to click on before you can do any more typing". Somehow I don't think the GP response would be "Wow - just what I always needed".
