Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
A patient doesn't go straight to a state of sepsis/septicemia. If there was a primary infection with e.coli, there'd have been a rise in temperature which should have been observed and acted on.

Once septicemia has taken hold and the whole organism is involved, stopping it can be extremely hard or impossible, as I know from two deaths close to me.
