A Partnership to Prevent Sepsis

Sepsis Program

Sepsis Program

Sepsis Alliance and Elara Caring have embarked on a public-private collaboration to improve care, outcomes and early identification of patients with sepsis in the home care setting.

What is Sepsis?

Sepsis is the body’s life-threatening response to infection that affects 1.7 million people and takes an estimated 270,000 U.S. lives every year. The symptoms of sepsis include:

  • Temperature higher or lower than normal
  • Signs and symptoms of infection
  • Mental decline including confusion and difficulty to rouse
  • Extreme illness, severe pain or shortness of breath

Reducing the Risk of Sepsis

This program puts lifesaving protocols in place so that every Elara Caring team member and patient/caregiver knows how to identify sepsis and act immediately.

We are just a phone call away 24 hours per day, 7 days per week. If you have a question or concern we want you to call us for help. We are ready to listen, answer questions, give direction and take action whenever you need us.

Safe at Home

Skilled Home Health can help patients transition safely back into their home setting and help minimize the likelihood of rehospitalization.
