A new initiative at Hasbro Children’s Hospital promises to save lives. "Patients that will survive sepsis are patients that get treated right away,” said Dr. Ranna Rozenfeld, who is a pediatric critical care physician at Hasbro.

Rozenfeld said they've seen more cases of sepsis than usual, partly because of a bad flu season.
