VP - she can only call in emergencies. I think it's about 30 minutes or so from here. She's all excited, practically all packed and ready to go. She will mail a letter/postcard on Monday

Hmm systemic infection... well from what I know it is pretty general. It's commonly referred to as 'sepsis' and it is the presence of pathogens or microorganisms in the tissues or the bloodstream. One of our patients last year had septicemia where the organisms would spread and cause chills, fever, and an abscessing of some of his organs.

I don't know if that's what you were after
That's exactly what I read on webmd. The reason I asked is because a girl from Sarah's school apparently passed away earlier in the week from this. In the newspaper, it said systemic infection, but it also said she had "flu-like symptoms," and when I hear that, the first think I think of is meningitis. Scary stuff.

How tragic! I'm so sorry to hear about that! Meningitis is very scary, indeed. Something that can seem so ordinary or simple, like the flu, can quickly turn nasty.

Aww, I'm sure it'll be very difficult for you, but 30 minutes away isn't all that bad. Glad to hear she's excited, too! I'm sure it'll be a great experience for her

So, could that be what they meant by "systemic infection?" I would think that whatever it is, if it were a public health threat, or if there were any danger, they would be obligated to report it, wouldn't they?

Hmm, it's hard to say without knowing what the exact organism was. If it was meningitis that caused the sepsis then yes, it is contagious. Sepsis itself isn't contagious, but the infectious agents that cause it can usually be transmitted from person to person. So it all depends on what exactly those organisms are.

You're right, I would think that if it were something serious and easily passed, the health unit would have to report it.
