Overview

Sepsis is the leading cause of infection-related deaths worldwide and the most costly condition to treat in United States hospitals. This is the result of care delivered too late. It is, surprisingly, the patients with less severe sepsis that make up the majority of sepsis-related deaths. Learn about this urgent opportunity for improvement in the early recognition and rapid treatment of sepsis made possible by a standardized nurse-empowered approach that reduces treatment reaction times, improves patient outcomes and prevents costly measures.
