State regulations tied to reduced sepsis mortality in New York
Fierce Healthcare writes: The success of New York’s mandate for protocolized sepsis care offers a nuanced lesson for other states considering similar regulations.
New research published in JAMA finds New York State’s implementation of sepsis regulations in 2013 produced sepsis mortality rates significantly lower than those found in four states that did not implement regulations. Unadjusted 30-day in-hospital mortality rates in New York dropped from 26.3% before the regulations to 22% after the regulations.
