The Tennessee Center for Patient Safety is committed to working with its members to improve hospital Sepsis care and associated patient outcomes. Nationally, the inpatient severe Sepsis mortality rate ranges from 20 to 50 percent.1

The goal of TCPS is to spread evidence-based Sepsis interventions. TCPS will assist hospitals in implementing early recognition Sepsis screening and standardized Sepsis treatment protocols and to reduce severe Sepsis readmission and mortality rates in TN.
