Better sepsis survival rates seen at high-volume hospitals

Critical Care SmartBrief | Sep 09, 2014

Sepsis patients treated in hospitals that had 500 or more cases annually had a 36% higher likelihood of survival, compared with patients in facilities that had fewer than 50 cases per year, researchers reported in the American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine. Lead author Dr. David Gaieski said physicians at high-volume hospitals may be more likely to notice nonspecific symptoms and have protocols to detect sepsis in critically ill patients.
