We have every 15 min while titrating vasopressors but I also have to remind 
them after the fluid to set the monitor for q 15 min so we can get the bp.

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.
