About

Orlaith Staunton raises awareness about Sepsis prevention through her work with the Rory Staunton Foundation for Sepsis Prevention. Orlaith has dedicated herself to reducing the number of sepsis-caused deaths through education and outreach aimed at faster diagnosis and effective treatment of sepsis, particularly in children.

The Rory Staunton Foundation for Sepsis Prevention seeks to reduce the number of sepsis-caused deaths through education and outreach aimed at faster diagnosis and effective treatment of sepsis, particularly in children. Orlaith’s efforts have already had a far reaching impact. In January 2013, less than one year after Rory’s death, the state of New York adopted a mandated set of protocols, known as “Rory’s Regulations,” which require hospitals to screen patients suspected of sepsis and to expedite prompt treatment with antibiotics. It’s estimated that Rory’s Regulations will save up to 8,000 New Yorkers every year.

Being a Women of Worth means I can draw vital attention to my family's mission, to ensure that no other child dies of sepsis like our beloved son Rory.
