Hematologist (Pediatric) Questions Sepsis

What is the treatment for sepsis?

My nephew is 3 years old and has been admitted in the hospital they actually found sepsis in his blood. I always thought this infection to be a hospital acquired infection, but he hasn't been in the hospital to get it. Could he have gotten sepsis from something else? How is this disease contracted?

Sepsis is a general term for infection with systemic symptoms. Bacterial infections that cause sepsis can be community acquired.
