Outcome of Care Measures: Mortality Inpatient Quality Indicator (IQI)
Lower Rate is Better
Hospital Rate National Average Rate (2018) Statewide Average Rate (2020)
Heart Attack 7.3 5 5.8
Pneumonia 13.2 ** 4.5 5.9
Heart Failure 3.7 2.6 2.8
Stroke 8.3 7 7.3

** Statistically significantly above statewide average (worse than average)



Outcome of Care Measures: Coronary Artery Bypass Graft (CABG) Surgery Mortality
Lower Rate is Better
Hospital Rate State Rate
Number of Cases 190 7398
Mortality Rate* 2.09 2.37
95% Confidence Interval (0.67, 4.88)
* Operative Mortality includes: (1) all deaths occurring during the hospitalization in which the operation was performed, even after 30 days; and (2) those deaths occurring after discharge from the hospital, but within 30 days of the procedures.



Patient Safety Indicators
Lower Rate is Better
Hospital Rate National comparative rates (2018) Statewide number of adverse events (2020) Statewide average rates (2020)
Retained Surgical Item or Unretrieved Device Fragment 0 629 10 NA
Iatrogenic pneumo thorax 0.1 0.2 89 0.2
In Hospital Fall with Hip Fracture 0.2 0.1 38 0.1
Post-operative hemorrhage or hematoma 1 2.4 313 2.2
Post-operative pulmonary embolism (PE) or deep vein thrombosis (DVT) 6.1 3.4 551 3.7
Post-operative sepsis 8.8 4.1 215 3.8
Post-operative wound dehiscence 1.5 0.8 29 0.6
Abdominopelvic Accidental Puncture or Laceration 0 1.0 89 0.8
Birth Trauma+ 2.6 4.5 221 2.4
Obstetric trauma - vaginal delivery with instrument+ 129.6 116.0 429 114.7
Obstetric trauma - vaginal delivery without instrument+ 20.2 17.4 832 14.8

+ Observed rate (not risk-adjusted)

Not applicable - Rate is not applicable for "Retained Surgical Item or Unretrieved Device Fragment Count" and "Transfusion Reaction". Both indicators are measured using volume instead of rate.

National Comparison‡
Standardized Infection Ratio (SIR) NJ Statewide to
National Comparison
Abdominal Hysterectomy Surgical Site Infections, 2019 --- --- Similar
Catheter-Associated Urinary Tract Infections (CAUTI), 2019 Similar 1.275 Lower
Central Line-Associated Bloodstream Infections (CLABSI), 2019 Lower 0.341 Lower
Colon Surgical Site Infections, 2019 Similar 0.68 Lower
Coronary Artery Bypass Graft (CABG) Infections, 2019 --- --- Similar
Knee Arthroplasty Surgical Site Infections, 2019 Higher 3.142 Similar
Overall Surgical Site Infections, 2019 Higher 1.921 Lower

Each hospital is compared to the National Ratio=1.

--- Standardized Infection Ratio (SIR) is not calculated because the Expected is < 1

Higher - √°indicates hospital infections are HIGHER than infections seen nationally.

Lower - indicates hospital infections are LOWER than infections seen nationally.

Similar - √°indicates hospital infections are SIMILAR to infections seen nationally.
