Medical Simulation Corporation Introduces Sepsis Quality Initiative Program

DENVER, Oct. 28 /PRNewswire/ -- Medical Simulation Corporation (MSC) announces the introduction of the SimSuite Sepsis Program, based on guidelines developed by the national Surviving Sepsis Campaign. The Sepsis Program is one offering in a full menu of SimSuite education solutions that address current national quality and patient safety initiatives.

Each year, sepsis strikes an estimated 750,000 people in the United States alone. Sepsis is the leading cause of death for non-cardiac, critically ill patients in the U.S. and is also very costly to treat. The 2008 HealthGrades National Hospital Quality Study found that if hospital quality improvement efforts were targeted to just four diagnoses (including sepsis), the U.S. could reduce potentially preventable deaths by approximately 54 percent, translating into hundreds of thousands of lives saved. Post-operative sepsis is also a patient safety quality indicator tracked closely by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality.

Early diagnosis and appropriate treatment of sepsis are crucial to improving patient outcomes. The SimSuite Sepsis Program focuses on early identification and appropriate treatment, with the goal of stopping the progression of sepsis into severe sepsis or septic shock.

Barbara McLean, MN, RN, CCRN, CCNS-NP, FCCM, Sepsis Program author and nationally-recognized critical care expert, remarks, "Simulation has been documented as an excellent tool for hospital educators and clinicians to use in the implementation of critical thinking and utilization of guidelines. The SimSuite Sepsis Program is the only simulation-based training solution that focuses on early identification as well as implementation of therapies using realistic, hands-on education. The SimSuite Sepsis Program facilitates strengthening the decision-making skills of all providers as well as providing support for the treatment of patients in all stages of sepsis."

The SimSuite Sepsis Program enables standardized training across healthcare team members, increasing the competence and confidenceTM of all nurses and physicians in critical and acute care settings who are responsible for patient care.

"The national Surviving Sepsis Campaign has led the development of guidelines to assist healthcare providers in early identification and treatment of sepsis; however, there are few resources devoted to putting these guidelines into practice," says Bill Younkes, MSC president and CEO. "The SimSuite Sepsis Program brings these widely available guidelines to practice through realistic, simulation-based training."

The SimSuite Sepsis Program is available through multiple training options designed to meet the needs of different healthcare teams. A comprehensive training tool kit allows hospital educators to customize course content to match their facilities' sepsis protocols relating to procedures and documentation.

MSC recently introduced a Moderate Sedation Quality Initiative Program. Other SimSuite Quality Initiative Programs to be available in early 2009 include Ventilator Associated Pneumonia and Central Line Management.

Medical Simulation Corporation (MSC) is the recognized healthcare industry leader in providing full-service simulation training and education services to healthcare personnel, medical societies and medical product manufacturers. MSC's patient safety solutions are designed to strengthen the competence and confidence(TM) of nurses, physicians and technologists.
