Recommended Care/Process of Care Measures
Higher Score is Better
  Hospital
Overall Score
State Median State Top 10%
Heart Attack (detail) 90 ^ 95 100
Pneumonia (detail) 98 99 100
Surgical Care Improvement (detail) 99 99 100
Heart Failure (detail) 100 100 100

^ Hospital score for this measure is based on a small number of patients (less than 25). Interpret data with caution.



Outcome of Care Measures: Mortality Inpatient Quality Indicator (IQI)
Lower Rate is Better
Hospital Rate National Average Rate (2013) Statewide Average Rate (2015)
Heart Attack 8.5 5.4 5.8
Pneumonia 6.6 ** 3 3
Heart Failure 3.2 3.4 2.5
Stroke 8.5 7.9 7

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



Patient Safety Indicators
Lower Rate is Better
Hospital Rate National average rate (2013) Statewide number of adverse events (2015) Statewide average rate (2015)
Retained Surgical Item or Unretrieved Device Fragment 0 852 23 -
Iatrogenic pneumo thorax 0.1 0.3 160 0.2
Post-operative hip fracture 0 0.1 3 0
Post-operative hemorrhage or hematoma 3.3 4.5 791 4.4
Post-operative pulmonary embolism (PE) or deep vein thrombosis (DVT) 4 3.7 1090 5.5
Post-operative sepsis 11.9 4.3 117 8.1
Post-operative wound dehiscence 0 1.7 37 1.2
Accidental puncture or laceration 1.4 0.7 611 1
Transfusion reaction 0 38 0 -
Birth Trauma+ 3 2 192 2
Obstetric trauma - vaginal delivery with instrument+ 128.2 127.9 328 96
Obstetric trauma - vaginal delivery without instrument+ 21 20 747 13.3

+ 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.
