The Ohio Hospital Association collaborates with providers across the state to leverage September as Sepsis Awareness Month to increase early recognition and early intervention of sepsis, which affects more than 41,000 Ohioans each year.
Two educational events are scheduled for health care providers across the continuum of care. OHA is teaming with Ohio Health and Mount Carmel Health System to present “2019 Surviving Sepsis: A Continuum of Care Symposium,” from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sept. 6, at the Aladdin Shrine Center.
