Activation Teams for Trauma, Heart Attack, Stroke and Sepsis

In 2015, we added Sepsis Activation to our toolkit of activations to trigger immediate care for this very serious infection in the bloodstream. Since 2011, we instituted activation teams as a “best practice” approach in the way we care for trauma, heart attack, stroke, and now sepsis. This best practice originated out of the Hilo Medical Center’s Trauma Program.
