Project Information

Kidney stone patient quality project

Project Description: We would like to improve our pre operative management of patients with complex stone histories and co-morbidities. We need to look back at two years worth of data on specific CPT codes and patients who developed sepsis or SEERS after certain stone removal procedures. From that data we are working with a multidisciplinary team to determine timing of preoperative antibiotics and selection of those antibiotics.
