Webinar Description

Sepsis is the body’s extreme response to an infection. It is a life-threatening medical emergency. 87% of sepsis cases start in the community setting before a patient goes to the hospital (CDC, 2022). Sepsis is the leading driver of healthcare-associated infections requiring hospitalization among short and long stay nursing home residents impacting the Five-Star Quality Rating System in Iowa (Medicare FFS part-A claims data for nursing home residents). Knowing signs and symptoms of sepsis, communicating concern of sepsis, and infection prevention can save a life. During this presentation we will identify processes to prevent infections leading to sepsis, recognize individuals at high-risk for infections and introduce tools and resources for prevention, recognition, communication and treatment of sepsis.
