The Faces of Sepsis
Phil Crow - survivor
I went into hospital for a routine procedure to remove gallstones. It went wrong and I developed pancreatitis as well as sepsis. I was in ICU for 6 weeks.
Phil wrote up his story in a blog post, where he described what happened:
On the 15 July 2010, I was admitted for my ERCP which is where it all went wrong. They completed the procedure and put me on Digby Ward in Lincoln County Hospital. My wife, Helen, is a nurse. She was there most of the time. She was watching me. Watching them. Watching them watching me and thank goodness she did. A male nurse was in charge of me. Helen wasn't happy with my care. It became something of a battle as he would not believe my wife.
