Active?: active
Program: CC
Requestor: 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.
