As part of the training, Carol Durham, a sepsis survivor and nursing educator at the UNC School of Nursing, shared her personal story with unit champions and demonstrated how MEWS can help identify patients that need interventions prior to an adverse event.

MEWS Champions will be working with their teams to raise awareness of the MEWS tool and the benefits of an early warning to our patients.

Stay tuned for more information about Code Sepsis and look for a future feature on Carol's experience with sepsis in 2010.
