Hospital Toolkit for Adult Sepsis Surveillance

Resource Location:

Centers for Disease Control (CDC)

This toolkit allows healthcare professionals who are interested in using the sepsis surveillance methodology from the national burden study to track healthcare facility-level sepsis incidence and outcomes using an objective
definition based on clinical data. Necessary data may be obtained and processed directly from electronic health record, but could also be obtained using manual chart review. These data may be useful for understanding the effectiveness of local sepsis prevention, early recognition, and treatment programs.
