This article in Patient Safety looks at a new approach to identifying and monitoring patients with sepsis developed by a team of nurses at WellSpan Health in the USA. The Central Alert Team (CAT) works remotely, looking for indicators of sepsis in patient charts and vital signs. They relay information and treatment advice to nurses working at the bedside and take an adaptive approach to find the best ways of working. This focused approach means the CAT nurses are able to quickly identify patients who are deteriorating and ensure treatment is administered at the right time.
