We’re proud to present a product that enables Residential Aged Care to meet the standards in Antimicrobial Stewardship with our AMS Quality Improvement Compendium for Sepsis.
It is common for residents of Residential Aged Care to acquire Sepsis and for Sepsis to be identified and diagnosed without a medical assessment.
Bug Control can make AMS easy. Analyse your surveillance data and choose from one or all of our RN developed compendiums to improve the well-being of residents, reduce inappropriate use of antibiotics in your facility and meet the AMS standard requirements.
Increased antibiotic use in the aged care setting has become a significant threat to our residents with the increasing use of antibiotics in facilities and the community.
Sepsis, a life-threatening condition caused by the body’s extreme reaction to an infection, has become a global health threat, affecting 30 million people worldwide and causing between six and nine million deaths each year.
Early detection for Sepsis management is key and the study supports our resources using a multimodal approach to Sepsis performance improvement and compliance.
A multimodal approach to delivering education and training increased early detection and treatment by 30% and reduced hospitalisation and deaths by 5%.
Sepsis is a medical emergency. Older people living in Residential Aged Care are 6 times more likely to present with Sepsis in hospitals than those in the community.
The five most common infections leading to Sepsis are Pneumonia, UTIs, wound infections, Meningitis, and Endocarditis.
This resource pack will enable your facility to adopt the multimodal approach in the early detection and treatment of Sepsis.
