Code Sepsis team recognizes Sepsis Stars

The Code Sepsis team is grateful to the latest Sepsis Stars, who were instrumental in delivering the sepsis bundle to patients in their care. Please see which of your colleagues are Sepsis Stars.

Research has proven that patient outcomes are improved when the sepsis care bundle is delivered within 60 minutes. The sepsis initiative is working to improve timely recognition of potential sepsis and implement the entire care bundle including a lactic acid, blood cultures, IV antibiotics, and IV fluids.

The following individuals and teams are recognized for their work on behalf of Code Sepsis:

  • Tara McCoy – RN, Emergency Medicine - for performing adult ED chart reviews and championing the sepsis education efforts in Emergency Medicine to improve sepsis bundle compliance.
  • Courtney Hill – Data Analyst - for performing data analysis for the sepsis project’s key metrics.
  • Kristen Puerta – Clinical Quality Assurance Specialist - performs adult inpatient chart reviews and interacts with nursing to improve sepsis bundle compliance.
