Purpose: Current evidence based research demonstrates that the utilization of defined sepsis care guidelines, provide time sensitive treatment protocols that help guide nurses through effective early initiatives in reducing patient mortality. Since time of treatment for sepsis is outlined as being most effective if delivered in the first six hours following diagnosis, it is imperative to treat patients as soon as they arrive in the hospital for treatment. Emergency departments (ED) are the most common initial route of care that patients take for hospitalization of sepsis type infections. Currently many hospitals do not have a defined treatment protocol that initiates this needed treatment to start in the ED. Sepsis bundles offer ED nurses the guidelines that are needed to help care for such patients.
