Washington Hospital Quality
A service of the Washington State Hospital Association

What is this?

"Postoperative sepsis cases (secondary diagnosis) per 1,000 elective surgical discharges for patients ages 18 years and older. Excludes cases with a principal diagnosis of sepsis, cases with a secondary diagnosis of sepsis present on admission, cases with a principal diagnosis of infection, cases with a secondary diagnosis of infection present on admission (only if they also have a secondary diagnosis of sepsis), obstetric discharges"

Why this matters?

Patients who receive appropriate care for sepsis have decreases in organ failure, overall reductions in death in the hospital, length of stay, and costs of care.
