Sepsis affects millions of Americans annually. Oncology patients are at greater risk for infection which in turn makes them higher risk for sepsis. In order to address sepsis bundle compliance a interdisciplinary team with distinct roles can be created out of current staffing with the end goal to provide better patient outcomes. The interdisciplinary teams involved include: nursing, pharmacy, physicians, lab technicians, and patient care technicians. Mobilizing all of these people and giving an assigned role along with early notification with the goal to improve compliance to sepsis bundles to 90% a month among all patients diagnosed with sepsis.
