The Sepsis in the Wards project, from the Society of Critical Care Medicine and the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation, sought to ensure that every patient was screened for sepsis on every shift each day in a pilot inpatient ward. When the results of patient screening were positive, teams intervened with the Surviving Sepsis Campaign bundle.
Hospitals participating in the Sepsis in the Wards project shared insights on screening interventions and eventually facilitated knowledge transfer across units within the hospital.
The Spreading Quality Just in Time series offers short tutorials on the science and methods behind applying interventions at the right time in the right way. This series is relevant to those seeking information on sepsis screening quality improvement but can also be used by hospitals interested in hospital-wide expansion of any quality improvement initiative.
