Outcome of Care Measures: Mortality Inpatient Quality Indicator (IQI)
Lower Rate is Better
Hospital Rate National Average Rate (2017) Statewide Average Rate (2019)
Heart Attack 2.1 ^ 5 5.2
Pneumonia 1.2 2.6 2.6
Heart Failure 1.1 2.7 2.8
Stroke 1.8 7.2 6.6

^ Rate is based on denominator less than 30 and should be taken with caution



Patient Safety Indicators
Lower Rate is Better
Hospital Rate National comparative ratea (2017) Statewide number of adverse events (2019) Satewide average rates (2019)
Retained Surgical Item or Unretrieved Device Fragment 0 619 13 NA
Iatrogenic pneumo thorax 0 0.2 97 0.1
In Hospital Fall with Hip Fracture 0.2 0.1 33 0.1
Post-operative hemorrhage or hematoma 0 2.2 384 2.2
Post-operative pulmonary embolism (PE) or deep vein thrombosis (DVT) 0 * 3.4 583 3.4
Post-operative sepsis 0 4.0 248 3.4
Post-operative wound dehiscence 0 0.7 14 0.3

Obstetric trauma - vaginal delivery without instrument+ 19.7 17.6 859 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.

* Better than State Average (i.e.occurrence rate of adverse events is less than statewide 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 0.973 Lower
Central Line-Associated Bloodstream Infections (CLABSI), 2019 Similar 0.855 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.
