Tip of the Week – Sepsis Alliance and Nurses

Susan Irick, Nurse and Sepsis Survivor

Susan Irick, Nurse and Sepsis Survivor

Sepsis Alliance is a charitable organization run by a team of dedicated laypeople and healthcare professionals who share a strong commitment to battling sepsis. The organization was founded in 2007, by Dr. Carl Flatley, whose daughter Erin died of sepsis when she was 23 years old. The Sepsis Alliance was created to raise sepsis awareness among both the general public and healthcare professionals.

Infection awareness can and does save lives, yet fewer than half of American adults have ever heard the word. Sepsis Alliance also gives a voice to the millions of people who have been touched by sepsis – to the survivors, and the friends and family members of those who have survived or who have died. Survivors and those left behind often feel as if they are alone. Join me as I chat with Susan Irick, a Nurse Practitioner who is the Disease Manger for Pneumonia and Sepsis at Northeast Georgia Health System.
