Association between state-mandated protocolized sepsis care and in-hospital mortality among adults with sepsis.
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the association between New York State sepsis regulations and the outcomes of patients hospitalized with sepsis. Results showed that, in New York State, mandated protocolized sepsis care was associated with a greater decrease in sepsis mortality compared with sepsis mortality in control states (Florida, Maryland, Massachusetts, and New Jersey) that did not implement sepsis regulations. The authors add that, because baseline mortality rates differ between New York and the comparison states, it is uncertain whether these findings will be generalizable to other states.
