Nurses Suspect Sepsis
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.

New Sepsis Intervention Initiatives in Home Care and Beyond
This session presents the development of the Home Care Association of New York State (HCA) Home Care Sepsis Initiative and Tool. Feedback and lessons learned about the clinical use of the Tool are discussed. A major foundation project grant to promote statewide adoption, use, and cross-sector collaboration in sepsis response was awarded to HCA. Explanation of this initiative and implementation are provided as it can be adopted in other states, in other sectors and in innovative models (e.g., sepsis bundles). Case examples help to further clarify the clinical application of early recognition and treatment of sepsis.
