Foundation Visits California To Raise Sepsis Awareness And Make California #SepsisSafe
This month, the Rory Staunton Foundation led a delegation of families impacted by sepsis on a two-day tour of the California state capital to raise awareness of the sepsis death toll and advocate for the adoption of evidence-based sepsis protocols in all California hospitals.
The group held meetings with legislators and policymakers, sharing their stories of how sepsis had devastated their lives and how commonsense protocols could have prevented their tragedies. The #SepsisSafeCA campaign ended with a meeting with CA Governor Jerry Brown.
We are enormously proud of the individuals who bravely and eloquently shared their stories so that others would not experience the same heartbreak. We will continue to press the California Department of Health and and State legislators until California joins New York, New Jersey, and Illinois to become a #SepsisSafe state!
