For the measure element of Persistent hypotension, if only one BP is recorded within the one hour after crystalloid fluid administration and SBP < 90 or MAP < 65, you are to check "persistent hypotension is not assessed." This would create a fallout for the sepsis core measure.
Is anyone else having these issues? We do have a policy for every 1 hr vitals in the ICU setting with Vasopressors or hypotension. Does everyone have a different interval for vital signs? Any assistance to help would be appreciated. Thanks.
