In collaboration with its Nevada Patient and Family Advisory Council, Comagine Health has created this 8.5"x14" infographic poster or handout that describes Post-Intensive Care Syndrome (PICS).
To improve the clinical outcomes for their patients and based on research that shows admissions from nursing homes are more likely to be for septicemia, hospitals are beginning to partner with LTPACs to improve the early recognition and intervention for signs and symptoms of sepsis. This toolkit is a result of those partnerships developing in Nevada when sepsis coordinators from a hospital system reached out to a small group of nursing homes they receive transfers from to provide education to the clinical staff.
