Summary:
Abstract: The study's purpose was comparing the effects of treating sepsis with a bundle as opposed to treating sepsis without a bundle on the mortality rate of septic patients ages 18-83. This researcher used a retrospective chart review of 71 patients. Because septic patients had no reported deaths, analysis was conducted on quality indicators length of stay (LOS) in emergency department (ED), LOS in hospital, and  Read more...

Abstract:

Abstract: The study's purpose was comparing the effects of treating sepsis with a bundle as opposed to treating sepsis without a bundle on the mortality rate of septic patients ages 18-83. This researcher used a retrospective chart review of 71 patients. Because septic patients had no reported deaths, analysis was conducted on quality indicators length of stay (LOS) in emergency department (ED), LOS in hospital, and sepsis bundle compliance. Overall, results showed statistically significant longer hours of ED stay for patients treated with a sepsis bundle, p = .021, and a shorter hospital stay, p = .029. Findings suggested that applying the sepsis bundle protocol may have led to longer LOS in ED up front but decreased overall LOS in hospital later. Although there were no deaths in either group, other clinical outcome indicators may be needed to show the true effect of applying sepsis bundle protocols outside of mortality.
