Often, the first health care professionals to treat the patient with sepsis are the patient's primary care physician or pediatrician, often immediately followed by a specialist in emergency medicine . Almost all patients diagnosed with sepsis are treated in the hospital; there are no home remedies for sepsis. Hospitalists, critical care medicine physicians, and pulmonary specialists, infectious disease specialists, and occasionally a toxicologist or a surgeon may need to be consulted, depending upon the patient's condition and underlying medical cause of the sepsis.
… the special sciences themselves exhibit in various ways the need for such a unification. For example, the different psychological theories employ so many different terms and phrases that it becomes difficult to know whether they are dealing with the same subject or not… One of the most important aims of the Unity of Science movement is therefore concerned with the unification of scientific language. Distinct terms occur in different disciplines which nevertheless may have the same function and much fruitless controversy may arise in trying to find a distinction between them… A large collection of terms have been gathered by the various sciences during the centuries, and it is necessary to examine this collection from time to time, for terms should not be multiplied beyond necessity. (1983, 172-3)
Periodically, the team should revisit their definition of “done” and check to see that it still suits their needs. A good time for this is during sprint retrospective. If a particular consideration seems like it is often overlooked, it might be worth adding it to the definition of “done.” For example, our team found that we were often finishing stories, only to find that we had forgotten to tag the story for analytics. We also frequently forgot to tag images so that they would be easily accessible to someone using a text-to-speech screen reader as an accommodation for visual impairment. These invisible details can be easy to overlook during the development and testing of a story, but they are often very important. While these tasks might not take much time when they are done along with the rest of development, when they are overlooked they can become time consuming and such chores can quickly fill a product backlog. As a result, our team added analytics and accessibility to our definition of “done.” Now, when we are ready to close a user story, our team checks to make sure analytics and accessibility have been addressed.
