The impact of sepsis diagnosis and documentation, Part 1 – Modern Practice Podcast
For decades, clinicians have known that effective intervention in sepsis cases relies universally on early diagnosis. Yet, despite this fact, sepsis remains a tough challenge. One in three patients dying in the hospital will have sepsis. Even more importantly for documentation, 87 percent of patients in the hospital with sepsis had it before admission. This episode examines ways to improve both diagnosis and documentation for sepsis patients in order to improve care and reduce the ill effects on clinicians and hospitals.
