July 25 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
This webinar is part of the Sepsis: Across the Continuum of Care webinar series.
Date: Thursday, July 25
Time: 2 PM EST/11 AM PST
At Virginia Mason Health System in Seattle, WA, sepsis was responsible for 47% of all mortality cases in the health system during a 7-year window. There had to be drastic improvement for the good of the patients that entrusted their care to the hospital. Through the eyes of a sepsis case study, learn how executives, clinicians, and frontline staff at Virginia Mason Health System signaled the urgency for change, built trust with key stakeholders, and empowered the frontline staff and physicians for improvement to create a collaborative, rapid-response protocol that delivers effective sepsis treatment in 60 minutes or less.
