In brief: Can

Bacterial resistance is becoming prevalent as we have increased usage for even non infectious cases.
When there is confirmed resistant strain that enters into the blood stream, sepsis is a possibility as we can potentially run out of options to treat.

In brief: Maybe

It may be more difficult to treat but multidrug resistant bacteria do not necessarily produce more sepsis than very sensitive ones.

In brief: Antibiotics/sepsis

Yes.
As antibiotics resistance emerges, the severity and duration of bacterial illness is worse, leading to a greater risk of sepsis and adverse events.
