Special Cases

Suggested to Con to use similar to QA Septic Ttenbergen 13:34, 24 December 2010 (CST)

    • Only for this study, when a patient has a central line infection please include "septicemia" as a diagnosis also. This way we can capture the positive blood culture as per a previous discussion with Dr. Embil.--CMarks 14:02, 18 March 2011 (CDT)

Consistency Checks

Function TmpChecker will check for the following:

  • dates will need to be consistent with admit/discharge; waiting to hear back what rules will be for pts who leave.Ttenbergen 13:24, 24 December 2010 (CST)
    • I am unsure what you mean Tina.--CMarks 15:06, 21 January 2011 (CST)
  • If "Positive Culture" entry is present for a patient, then there will have to be either a date or a checkbox for the other entries.
  • If patient discharged and blood culture result not back before this, follow the 5 day rule to see if culture is positive before sending as a completed data file.--CMarks 14:17, 20 January 2011 (CST)
      • CLARIFICATION--If the blood culture was sent from another ward/ER/ICU but the patient is physically located on A4 or D4 and it comes back positive the patient profile qualifies for the study. If the patient is anywhere but these wards NO information needs to be collected as they do not qualify for the study.--CMarks 13:21, 16 March 2011 (CDT)

Sending to TmpV2.mdb

Data will be sent only for the completed patient data files as is normally done on Wednesdays.--CMarks 14:22, 20 January 2011 (CST)

  • The above is was not happening. Repeated data is sent every week. Tina will need to fix if project is started again in the future. --TOstryzniuk 17:38, 15 June 2011 (CDT)


The following data needs to be reported back to Dr. Embil, pending review at the review date above:

  • Early ID Study data from TMPV2,Initials, ward location chart number, LOS, admit date, discharge date,and complications & comorbid conditions.
  • In 1 month - the above raw data to be sent to Dr. Embil (in Excel would be fine). Julie will pull needed elements from ccmdb, database and TMPV2 and sent to Dr. Embil. This would be the end of the first week of March. The information will analyzed by Dr. Embil and team.
  • Dr. Embil may asks Julie later in the project if it is continued do some minor analysis.
