TUH Rollout Sepsis Trolleys

TUH Rollout Sepsis Trolleys

Monday the 13th of September marked #WorldSepsisDay. Tallaght University Hospital would like to acknowledge the support of the Adelaide Health Foundation in placing four dedicated Sepsis Trolleys in the Emergency Department and some wards in the Hospital. Sepsis is a life threatening illness that is preventable if people know the signs and symptoms, once in hospital the quicker you receive treatment for Sepsis the better. The completion of the Sepsis Six* within one hour is essential. The introduction of the mobile Sepsis trolleys will improve the management of Sepsis and help with the completion of the Sepsis Six bundle within the required one hour timeframe which will improve patient outcomes. Take blood cultures, check full blood count and lactate, IV fluids, IV antibiotics, monitor urine output and give oxygen
