PBS Features ICU Liberation Team

"​I am very aware that I am not the same person who went into the hospital with sepsis,” said intensive care unit (ICU) survivor Paul Turpin in an interview with PBS NewsHour.

This broadcast, entitled, Why a Stay in the ICU Can Leave Patients Worse Off, shares the story of Turpin’s experience with post-intensive care syndrome (PICS) and what the ICU Liberation team at Vanderbilt University Medical Center and others across the country are doing to prevent and manage PICS for patients.
