Sepsis. Hospitals, Mind Your $$$.

As we are talking about sepsis here

In a recent study published at Archives of Internal Medicine, it was concluded that just because your institution can throw more money for sepsis protocols does not mean that it will result in decrease mortality.

Considering some of the bigger institutes has spent millions of dollars in creating these protocols. This means from hiring full time nurses who only responds to sepsis codes to hiring big consulting firms to establish and run these programs.

It was unclear from the study that why some institutions do better even without higher expenditure but with lower mortality rate.

Something to think about.

Blog you later.
