Retained Surgical Item or Unretrieved Device Fragment 0 629 10 NA
Iatrogenic pneumo thorax 0 0.2 89 0.2
In Hospital Fall with Hip Fracture 0 0.1 38 0.1
Post-operative hemorrhage or hematoma 0 2.4 313 2.2
Post-operative pulmonary embolism (PE) or deep vein thrombosis (DVT) 1.6 3.4 551 3.7
Post-operative sepsis 3.7 4.1 215 3.8

Birth Trauma+ 0 4.5 221 2.4
Obstetric trauma - vaginal delivery with instrument+ 90.9^ 116.0 429 114.7
Obstetric trauma - vaginal delivery without instrument+ 11.3 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.

^ Rate is based on less than 30 cases/patients and should be taken with caution.




Healthcare Associated Infections (HAIs)

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 0.511 Lower
Central Line-Associated Bloodstream Infections (CLABSI), 2019 Lower 0 Lower
Colon Surgical Site Infections, 2019 Similar 0 Lower
Knee Arthroplasty Surgical Site Infections, 2019 --- --- Similar
Overall Surgical Site Infections, 2019 Similar 0 Lower

Each hospital is compared to the National Ratio=1.

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

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

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