13th September 2017
September 13th was World Sepsis Day. Sepsis education and awareness is on-going across DMHG Hospitals however the entire month of September provided each hospital with an ideal opportunity to intensify the awareness amongst healthcare teams and educate patients and members of the public on the signs and symptoms of infection and sepsis.
The hospitals in the Dublin Midlands Group held sepsis awareness events for healthcare professionals, patients and members of the public. On World Sepsis Day St. Lukes, Rathgar, Midlands Regional Hospital Tullamore, Midlands Regional Hospital Portlaoise and St. James’s Hospital set up information hubs in the foyers of their respective hospitals showcasing the updated sepsis 3 forms and patient information leaflets.
On 20th September Tallaght Hospital held their second Sepsis Zero Harm event with information stands in the hospital foyer and the hospital canteen with roving teams going to all wards as some staff were unable to visit the information stands.
