Work is underway with Perinatal peers from the three acute hosptials maternity and neonatal services, embedding the KSC tool within trusts.
The KSC is a validated safety tool which is used to identify the risk of early onset sepsis in an infanct born 34+ weeks gestation and helping to determine whether antibiotics should be administered.
The benefits and outcomes of this project include.
- Reduction in unnecessary antibiotic use.
- Ensuring the right care is provided at the right time.
- Improving outcomes for our service users.
