New Jersey agrees to Mandatory Sepsis Protocols in all New Jersey hospitals

MartinaMartina Administrator admin

Under a proposed rule published in the New Jersey Register, hospitals would be required to establish, implement and periodically update evidence-based protocols for the early identification and treatment of patients with healthcare-acquired and community-acquired sepsis, and septic shock. The proposed rule, which is open for public comment through August 18, would also require hospitals to train staff in the protocols they establish.

Those wishing to comment on the proposal must submit written comments either electronically by August 18, 2017 to or by regular mail postmarked on or before August 18, 2017 to Genevieve Raganelli, Regulatory Officer, Deputy Administrative Practice Officer, Office of Legal and Regulatory Compliance, Office of the Commissioner, NJ Department of Health, PO Box 360, Trenton, NJ 08625-0360.
