Sepsis is a severe infection that afflicts an estimated 750,000 people in the United States and results in 117,000 to 215,000 deaths each year. The majority of sepsis cases are contracted prior to patients arriving at the hospital, so it's critical that it is diagnosed and treated immediately. To address this public health issue, in 2008, Kaiser Permanente Northern California hospitals introduced a comprehensive pilot program called the Sepsis Mortality Reduction Initiative. This video provides an overview of the program, which is now implemented across all of Kaiser Permanente's Northern California Region, and illustrates how patients who present with sepsis in the emergency department are quickly identified, aggressively treated and monitored.
