McKnight’s Senior Living nationally spotlighted HCA’s home care sepsis initiative Friday with highly energized coverage that it gave to HCA’s sepsis screening and intervention tool.
The HCA initiative was the subject of an extensive interview with HCA President Al Cardillo about HCA’s pace-setting work in this area and how New York home care has leaped uniquely and powerfully into the sepsis fight.
The article covers the key elements of the initiative and the severe problem that sepsis poses for individuals and the health care system. It also summarizes the derivation of the tool, specific components (screening tool, clinical algorithm, patient education zone tool, and more) and provides examples of its expansion to other states and providers in the country.
McKnight’s encourages its national readership to explore the sepsis fight and inquire further about the HCA tool.
