Pennsylvania Introducing Mandatory Sepsis Protocols
The Rory Staunton Foundation reports that the Pennsylvania Department of Health has committed to including regulatory sepsis protocols in their updated hospital regulations. This was confirmed recently in a letter from the Department of Health to Chris Aiello, Secretary of the National Family Council on Sepsis. Regulatory language such as New York’s regulations, were reviewed and adapted for the department’s hospital regulations. Pennsylvania will follow New Jersey who announced they had introduced mandatory sepsis protocols in January 2018.
