Impact of extended emergency department stay on antibiotic re-dosing delays and outcomes in sepsis

The American Journal of Emergency Medicine
Year of publication
 For patients with sepsis and septic shock, the initial administration of antibiotics should occur as soon as possible, preferably within one hour of sepsis recognition. While clinicians are focused on providing first-doses of antibiotics quickly upon presentation, re-dosing issues may arise in patients who have an extended emergency department (ED) length of stay (LOS). Limited studies have been conducted that assess the impact of re-dosing delays. The purpose of this study was to assess the association of an extended ED LOS ≥ 6 h with antibiotic re-dosing delays in patients with sepsis and examine outcomes.; Methods: A retrospective cohort study comparing patients with sepsis with an ED LOS of <6 h to those with an ED LOS of ≥6 h was performed between March 2018 and February 2020.
