The Kentucky Sepsis Consortium recently held its monthly sepsis webinar. This month’s webinar contained updates on data, related 2024 Hospital Rate Improvement Program (HRIP) metrics, the new registration process, and an excellent presentation titled “Training Resources for Reducing Blood Culture Contamination” presented by Kirsten Trudeau, MSN, APRN, FNP-C, lead for Simulation Training at the KyIP Training Center.

The webinar provided resources you can use in your facility to help you meet the goal of reducing blood culture contamination rates. If you were not able to attend the webinar, you can listen to the recording to get an overview of the use of simulation to promote best practice when collecting blood cultures. By focusing on likely moments when contamination might occur, these simulated experiences demonstrate best practices to prevent contamination.
