More than 250,000 people die of sepsis annually. How do we drive down sepsis mortality? With a sense of urgency for recognition and treatment. This webinar, co-hosted by the Compass HQIC, will explore strategies for “Hour 1 Bundle” implementation and SEP-1 measure compliance.
Attendees will learn directly from Lutheran Medical Center, a 338-bed acute care community hospital in Wheat Ridge, Colorado. Their performance improvement program spans ED sepsis alerts and Best Practice Advisories to increase sepsis recognition followed by the implementation of SCIRT (Sepsis/stroke, Cardiac, Intervention, Rapid/resuscitation, and Trauma) nurses and the sepsis “war room” concept to track early sepsis care. Their success in SEP-1 compliance and other metrics will show how real-time tracking of sepsis patients improve process and patient outcomes.
