Nursing’s Role in Identifying and Escalating the Rescue of the Sepsis Patient

September 24, 2020

Sepsis kills a person every two minutes in the United States. Early identification of sepsis and the timely implementation of evidence-based bundles significantly decrease sepsis mortality. Survivors can experience cognitive, mental and functional deficits long after the critical illness has resolved. Providing the right care to the right patient at the right time requires well-defined systems and processes. Nurses play a significant role in the early identification and management of the patient with sepsis.
