Answer

Seek consultation with an appropriate surgeon for patients with suspected or known infected foci, especially for patients with a suspected abdominal source.

Patients who do not respond to therapy or are in septic shock require admission to an ICU for continuous monitoring and observation. Consultation with a critical care physician or internist with expertise is appropriate.
