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


Outcome of Care Measures: Mortality Inpatient Quality Indicator (IQI)
Lower Rate is Better
Hospital Rate National Average Rate (2016) Statewide Average Rate (2017)
Heart Attack 17.8 ** 5.1 11
Pneumonia 5.4 ** 2.8 3.6
Heart Failure 6.2 ** 2.7 3.7
Stroke 8.6 ** 7.4 5.9

** 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 975 8,066
Mortality Rate* 2.22 1.76
95% Confidence Interval (1.50, 3.18)
* 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 averages (2016) Statewide number of adverse events (2017) Statewide average rates (2017)
Retained Surgical Item or Unretrieved Device Fragment 1 694 16 NA
Iatrogenic pneumo thorax 0.3 0.2 113 0.2
In Hospital Fall with Hip Fracture 0 0.1 35 0.1
Post-operative hemorrhage or hematoma 2.9 2.3 348 2.1
Post-operative pulmonary embolism (PE) or deep vein thrombosis (DVT) 4.8 3.4 698 4.1
Post-operative sepsis 3.9 4 296 3.7
Post-operative wound dehiscence 0.4 0.7 27 0.6
Unrecognized Abdominopelvic Accidental Puncture or Laceration 1.3 0.7 99 0.9
Birth Trauma+ 4.1 4.6 206 2.2
Obstetric trauma - vaginal delivery with instrument+ 134.3 109.9 429 109.4
Obstetric trauma - vaginal delivery without instrument+ 15.6 17.3 843 14.6

+ 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.




Healthcare Associated Infections (HAIs)

National Comparison‡
Standardized Infection Ratio (SIR) NJ Statewide to
National Comparison
Abdominal Hysterectomy Surgical Site Infections, 2017 Similar 0 Similar
Catheter-Associated Urinary Tract Infections (CAUTI), 2017 Similar 1.222 Lower
Central Line-Associated Bloodstream Infections (CLABSI), 2017 Lower 0.53 Lower
Colon Surgical Site Infections, 2017 Lower 0.261 Lower
Coronary Artery Bypass Graft (CABG) Infections, 2017 Similar 0.967 Higher
Knee Arthroplasty Surgical Site Infections, 2017 --- --- Similar
Overall Surgical Site Infections, 2017 Lower 0.42 Lower

‡ Each hospital is compared to the National Ratio=1 which is derived using the CDC's NHSN data from the 2015 baseline.

--- 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.
