SESSION TITLE: Sepsis I

SESSION TYPE: Original Investigation Poster

PRESENTED ON: Wednesday, October 26, 2016 at 01:30 PM - 02:30 PM

PURPOSE: Sepsis, with its high mortality and cost of treatment, is currently one of the biggest burdens on the United States (US) healthcare system. Examination of potential modifiable factors affecting sepsis outcomes may not only mitigate the financial strain sepsis causes, but also aid in improving the quality of its treatment. Studies have been done suggesting differences in quality of care between teaching and non-teaching hospitals. We looked at the association between hospital teaching status and sepsis outcomes by comparing mortality, length of stay, and cost between teaching and non-teaching hospitals.
