Generally, carers are not at the forefront of monitoring for the advent of sepsis or indeed other conditions. This is due to several factors. Homecare providers generally are not considered to be part of the vanguard watching for signs and symptoms of sepsis, and because organisations do not have access to the professional skills senior managers and the decision makers in home care companies are not as aware of sepsis as they could be.
Subsequently, opportunities for early diagnosis are often missed when early detection reduces the risk of adverse outcomes and increases the opportunity for recovery.
Sadly, an effective framework in which care providers are utilised to monitor health is not easily available. At Liberty Private Care we have overcome these obstacles by employing qualified and experienced Nurses to monitor various health conditions such as sepsis and diabetes and train and supervise the care staff to be aware and vigilant to the potential for the onset of these and other conditions.
