“Nurses Suspect Sepsis” (part 1 of the series…Sepsis: Across the Continuum of Care)
Sepsis Alliance presents:
“Nurses Suspect Sepsis” part of the webinar series, Sepsis: Across the Continuum of Care
Sepsis – it’s a condition that nurses know, but may not always recognize quickly enough to ensure early intervention. It is known that providing rapid care to patients with sepsis with immediate antibiotics and fluids as part of an organized approach has the potential to save thousands of lives a year. Suspicion and immediate treatment of sepsis is essential to reducing mortality and morbidity of a disease that kills more people than breast, lung and prostate cancer combined. Data suggest that by providing rapid care to patients with sepsis with immediate antibiotics and fluids as part of an organized approach to care has the potential to save thousands of lives a year.
