Subjects who received nursing practice guideline were assigned in study group. The results revealed that 1) receiving antibiotic administration rate within one hour increased from 92.50% to 100.00% (p = 0.001), 2) receiving fluid replacement within 6 hours increased from 65.00% to 88.80% (p = 0.001), 3) an average of arterial pressure rate greater than or equal to 65 mmHg increased from 71.30% to 96.30% (p <0.001), 4) urine output rate greater than 0.5ml/kg/hour increased from 62.50% to 87.50% (p = 0.002), 5) adequate tissue perfusion rate increased from 61.30% to 87.50% (p <0.001), and (6) mortality rate decreased from 31.30% to 15.00% (p = 0.015).
