Jena - 39 acute and rehabilitation clinics from Thuringia, Saxony, Saxony-Anhalt and Bavaria signed cooperation agreement today and thus founded the so-called Central German Sepsis Alliance (MSA). The clinics are committed to improving the prevention, early detection, acute and follow-up treatment of hospital infections and sepsis.
"With this step, Central Germany is playing pioneering role nationally and internationally," said Konrad Reinhart, Director of ( UKJ) and spokesman for the MSA. He is also chairman of the.
Reinhart emphasized that sepsis is not just an intensive care problem, but affects all medical areas, including the outpatient and pre-inpatient sector. This is exactly where the MSA comes in: It sees itself as supply network that integrates all those involved in the treatment chain - from the general practitioner to the ambulance service, the acute care clinics to aftercare in rehab facilities and finally the general practitioner again.
By signing the cooperation agreement, the institutions not only undertake to send employees to the MSA working groups, but also to offer internal training themselves . “We have been organizing central training courses for more than two years. Since then, the number of sepsis diagnoses has doubled, ”reports Andreas Meier-Hellmann, chief physician of the department.
