Intervening in Sepsis: Can Nurses Do More?
from Advance Healthcare Network
Consider a scenario that is all too familiar: You arrive for your regular shift in the medical intensive care unit (MICU). One of your patients is a previously healthy, 45-year-old female who is a mother of two. She came to the hospital via the emergency room the previous morning, with a high fever, low blood pressure, low urine output and back pain. The patient was found to have a kidney stone on a CT scan and was started on antibiotics and given intravenous fluids.
