We have carried out two studies, commissioned by the KSA Ministry of Health, focusing on sepsis treatment, compliance and outcomes for a seven-hospital cluster.
Sepsis in Saudi Arabia is recognised as being a key contributor to an estimated 64,000 deaths every year. To address this, we put together an improvement programme, outlining new systems and processes for sepsis treatment and recognition, which has the potential to save 32,000 lives every year. This would result in a 25% reduction in sepsis-related deaths in young adults. It would also have the added benefit of improving annual productivity by an estimated £1,709,000,000.
