Top Five ways Nurses Can Improve Sepsis Care:

  1. If a sepsis protocol does not currently exist, request that a sepsis screening program be initiated at your facility.
  2. Develop and provide sepsis information packets for patients and families.
  3. Establish a requirement for a sepsis course for all staff to complete.
  4. Post sepsis-related CE contact hour content for colleagues.
  5. Mark Sepsis Awareness Month (September) and World Sepsis Day (September 13) with activities and events to help raise sepsis awareness.
