- May 7, 2018: A message from the CDC and the Rory Staunton Foundation
Orlaith Staunton, co-founder of the Rory Staunton Foundation for Sepsis Prevention, and her daughter looked at each other in disbelief. They felt they were watching history repeat itself as a basketball coach bandaged a cut for one of his players, but without taking the precaution of cleaning the wound beforehand. That was the same scenario they believe led to sepsis and ultimately the death of Orlaith’s son Rory. In post on CDC's Safe Healthcare Blog, Orlaith explains the Rory Staunton Foundation's back to basics approach to prevent infections that could lead to sepsis.
