Alicia Cole will kick off Campaign For Quality on Friday at Hamilton College. Cole is a survivor of multiple hospital-acquired infections. In August 2006, following routine fibroid removal, she left the operating room with a fever, nausea and pain. Her condition quickly declined and she found herself being treated for sepsis, pseudomonas, MRSA, VRE and necrotizing fasciitis. Suddenly, Cole’s estimated two-day hospital stay turned into a two month fight for life. Cole is a patient safety advocate and her story will inspire everyone in the audience.
