At the Forum, the Rory Staunton Foundation announced three major initiatives designed to raise general awareness and knowledge of sepsis and improve hospital diagnoses and treatment of sepsis patients.
1. Education and Awareness
2. The 2020 Vision
The Rory Staunton Foundation announced its intention to work towards the implementation of Rory’s Regulations in every state by 2020. In 2013, New York State became the first in the nation to implement statewide sepsis protocols. The protocols, known as “Rory’s Regulations”, mandate that all hospitals in the State must adopt best practices for the early identification and treatment of sepsis, which is the number one killer in hospitals in the United States.
3. The National Family Council on Sepsis
The Rory Staunton Foundation officially announced the formation of the National Family Council on Sepsis. The Council is a coalition of those who have been affected by sepsis or who share the Foundation’s commitment to reducing deaths from sepsis. The Council has two overarching functions: Support and Action. Click here or more information about the Family Council.
