Foundation works with Coppell Fire Department on Sepsis training

Captain Ryan Spencer

The DFW Hospital Council (DFWHC) Foundation was present yesterday during the North Texas Trauma Regional Advisory Council’s annual membership meeting at the Arlington Convention Center to provide one hour of CME credits to attendees for the presentation “EMS: Ending the Mortality of Sepsis.”

The DFWHC Foundation’s own Sepsis Strike Force Committee enlisted the help of the Coppell Fire Department to develop the new educational class.

“We’ve been working on this project for several months,” said Patti Taylor, director of quality and patient safety at the DFWHC Foundation. “It’s crucial for first responders to begin treatment of sepsis before patients arrive at the hospital. It’s about saving lives, and there is no better place to start than with first responders.”

Baylor Scott & White Health provided the CNEs and the Coppell Fire Department provided the speakers including Kelly Vestal, Brandon Greenberg and Captain Ryan Spencer.
