AbstractThe purpose of this thesis is to develop an educational sheet that could be kept on-hand in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) as a reference for a group of evidence-based recommendations designed to reduce the rates of neonatal sepsis. This handout includes information regarding primary and secondary interventions, as well as signs and symptoms of sepsis. The primary interventions include healthcare worker hygiene and evidence-based practice for caring for patients with central venous catheters. The secondary interventions include antibiotic treatment information.
