||Critical Care QI Team
The Critical Care QI Team is monitoring VAPs in the ICUs. This project is in collaboration with CCVMS which is a cross Canada ICU collaborative project.
Data Collection Instructions
For all ICU patients except STB_CICU & STB_CCU:
- If a patient
- Project: QAInf
- Item: VAP
- date_var: date (no time) positive sputum culture was sent to micro lab.
- If a sputum culture is no longer a defining feature of VAP, do we need to change this to something else? We would definitely need to allow for not having a sputum culture date.
Don't use TMP as notes
Please do not enter this TMP until you have actually confirmed a DX of VAP exists. Use the Notes field on you laptop as a reminder if needed.
