Sepsis is one of the leading causes of death in hospitals, with at least 1.7 million people in the U.S. developing sepsis and nearly 270,000 dying from it each year. Nineteen percent of sepsis hospitalizations readmit within 30 days and 87 percent of sepsis cases start in the community. Sepsis mortality increases eight percent for each hour of delayed treatment.
