Sepsis has a very high mortality rate, with an even higher rate in the subset of patients in long-term care (LTC). Sepsis is also a medical emergency. In this environment of resource constraint in LTC, as well as attention to rehospitalization, how can the post-acute long-term care (PALTC) providers arm themselves with the basic principles of sepsis diagnosis and management in order to give timely and effective treatment to out LTC patients? This session will address the presentation of sepsis in older adults and early recognition of sepsis in PALTC residents. The webinar will also discuss realistic expectations for managing sepsis based on the staff, training, and resources available in most PALTC settings.
