Oct. 1: Improved Sepsis Awareness and Documentation for OB Patients

For OB Nurses

Effective Monday, Oct. 1, a BestPractice Advisory will trigger for OB patients at risk for sepsis. You need to either enter orders from the Sepsis order set or enter an acknowledgement reason.

In addition, Sepsis Score and Sepsis Screen – Signs and Symptoms of Infection flowsheet rows will appear on the Postpartum and Perinatal Complex Assessment flowsheets and Sepsis Screen is included in the Triage-Admit navigator.
