NHS forced to admit sepsis guidance is 'difficult' as GPs switch off alerts

Comment

I use it as a ruse to get patients admitted. In the last line of my admission covering letter I put - "insert your preliminary diagnosis here" +/- AKI +/- sepsis. All can only be discounted by doing some investigations. When the hospital don't bother to do any, they usually miss the AKI/sepsis.
