In brief: Sepsis

Dishcarge planning after neonatal sepsis may include routine newborn care like state newborn screen, hearing screen, and potential vaccinations.
Health care team should speak to the pediatrician, provide prescriptions/equipment, discuss parental concerns/expectations/train for care/development and recommendations for other follow up and therapies (ie speech, physical or occupational, if needed).
