Article by Clare B. Bradley, MD, MPH
IPRO Senior Director Kathleen M. Terry, PhD is co-author of an important article on hospital management of sepsis that appeared this summer in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA). The article compares in-hospital mortality for pediatric patients receiving a bundle of services within one hour of hospital admission versus outcomes for patients who didn't receive the bundle within 1 hour of admission to an emergency department, inpatient unit or intensive care unit. The authors find lower risk-adjusted odds of mortality for patients receiving the treatment bundle on a timely basis, but didn't find statistically significant reductions in mortality for timely completion of individual elements of the bundle. The article-Association Between the New York Sepsis Care Mandate and In-Hospital Mortality for Pediatric Sepsis-is the latest in a series of landmark sepsis articles published with the New York State Department of Health. It appears in the July 24/31 edition of JAMA and is summarized at https://jamanetwork.com.
