Quad Cities Coalition - Csomay Center

Quad Cities Skilled Nursing Facility Coalition

In 2019, the Quad Cities Skilled Nursing Facility Coalition targeted sepsis as a key educational topic to help reach their goal of reducing unplanned transfers to acute care settings.  The resources provided below were identified by the Coalition Sepsis Education Sub-Committee and approved by Coalition members. The Csomay Center is pleased to support this effort by providing a single access site to educational tools and resources that are offered by other experts, including the CDC and Sepsis Alliance.
