A tool designed to provide a visual roadmap for early recognition and intervention for signs and symptoms of sepsis. It outlines the actions of the CNA in monitoring a resident’s vital signs and communicating any values that indicate a systemic inflammatory response syndrome (SIRS) to the nurse.
This tool is designed to support nursing homes with tracking and trending of quality measure data from the CASPER Facility-Level Quality Measure Report.
It will automatically create a graphic representation of trends based on the data entered into the table for an individual measure.
Presentation designed to increase knowledge and understanding about:
A checklist for SIRS to be completed by the CNA and a list for the nurse to follow when assessing for severe sepsis.
