Sepsis Protocols Initiative Launched in Wisconsin thanks to the National Family Council on Sepsis
Today in Madison, Wisconsin, National Family Council Members Ann Ceschin and Tony Galbo held a very successful meeting with Wisconsin Health Services Secretary, Linda Seemeyer to address the issue of mandatory sepsis protocols throughout the state.
The State of Wisconsin Hospital Association already follow a set of guidelines Think Katie First named after Ann’s daughter Katie who died in January 2015 from undiagnosed sepsis. Tony and Liz Galbo’s daughter Gabby died in Illinois in May 2012 and they succeeded in having a set of mandatory sepsis protocols passed in her name “Gabby’s Law” which are now operated throughout the state of Illinois.
The National Family Council on Sepsis seeks to ensure that each state in the United States of America has mandatory sepsis protocols in place in all hospitals. The families of the council believe that it should not be like winning the lottery whether your loved one lives or dies, life saving protocols must be in all hospitals, sepsis deaths are preventable.
