Department of Emergency Medicine, Feinberg School of Medicine, Northwestern University, Chicago, IL, USA. emilie-powell@md.northwestern.edu

“CONCLUSIONS: After adjustment for comorbidity and hospital-level factors, there was a significant relationship between emergency department sepsis case volume and overall and early inpatient mortality among patients admitted through the emergency department with sepsis. Patients admitted to hospitals in the highest-volume quartile had 27% lower odds of inpatient mortality in this large heterogeneous sample.”
