CAP criteria triage

Nurses General Nursing


I know this is a pretty silly question.

But I don't know what "CAP criteria" as charted in my patient's TRIAGE profile is.

Can anyone please help? What is CAP criteria?

Thx :)

What's the patient's diagnosis?

Community Acquired Pneumonia... at my old hospital it was a entirely different order set in its own. To be diagnosed with it you had to meet a certain criteria (white level, sputum culture, onset of sx, etc...). Our CAP orders had the criteria right on the front sheet.
