A cost-outcome description of the septic work-up for bacterial infection in neonates in a tertiary care hospital.
Analysis of the septic work-up of 194 neonates at Women's College Hospital, Toronto, showed that the only antepartum condition predicting neonatal sepsis was the mother being on antibiotics.
The only postnatal condition predicting sepsis was a maternal postpartum white blood cell count over 11,000.
The average cost for tests for a septic work-up in these 194 mother-neonate pairs was $71.48 (Canadian dollars), and the average cost of tests to find a septic case was $1,066.77.
