New Nurse Education Tool Added to Website
May 23rd, 2017
Sepsis Alliance is pleased to announce a new nursing education tool. Nurses Suspect Sepsis debuted today at the 2017 National Teaching Institute & Critical Care Exposition. 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. This 20-minute video was created using the expertise of physicians, nurses, and healthcare professionals from a variety of backgrounds around the country. It provides an overview of the definition and symptoms of sepsis along with consequences as sepsis progresses. By the end of the video, viewers will be able to recognize early warning signs of sepsis and describe interventions and therapies to treat it.
This education tool is free and available to the public – we encourage hospitals and healthcare systems to share it at the next continuing education or staff meeting to refresh staff on early identification of sepsis.
