Friday is World Sepsis Day

Many employees at Memorial Hospital of Sweetwater County will be wearing pink on Friday, Sept. 13, as a way to raise awareness about sepsis. We encourage you to join us.

Sepsis arises when the body’s response to an infection injures its own tissues and organs. It may lead to shock, multi-organ failure, and death – especially if not recognized early and treated promptly. Sepsis is the final common pathway to death from most infectious diseases worldwide.
