Tragically, a Courageous nurse who lost both her legs and an arm to sepsis was discovered hanged, an inquiry heard today. When she experienced sepsis four years ago while recovering from a simple cough, Jayne Carpenter was left with only one limb.
In May 2016, when her cough transformed into deadly sepsis, she was admitted to intensive care – which kills over 30,000 individuals per year in the UK.
Jayne was in a coma for nine weeks and her husband was advised that to survive, she would require multiple amputations.
