Performance Sepsis Screening Antepartum & Postpartum


Maternal sepsis is a leading cause of maternal morbidity and mortality

Maternal sepsis is a leading cause of maternal morbidity and mortality.

Data from the California Pregnancy Associated Mortality Review (CA-PAMR) committee report: 

  •  Estimates that 63% of maternal deaths from sepsis had a good or strong chance to have been preventable. 
  • For each maternal death, there are 50 women who experience life-threatening morbidity from sepsis. 
  • Prompt recognition and rapid treatment of pregnant and postpartum women with sepsis usually results in good outcomes in this young and generally healthy population.
  • To help healthcare providers implement evidence- based methods for timely recognition of sepsis, CMQCC published the Improving Diagnosis and Treatment of Maternal Sepsis toolkit in January 2020.
