Hospital Quality Measures/Patient Safety Information

Patients admitted to the hospital for treatment of medical problems sometimes experience other serious injuries, complications, or conditions. Some patients may experience problems soon after they are discharged and need to be admitted to the hospital again. These events can often be prevented if hospitals follow best practices for treating patients.

Health Care Associated Infections (HAI)

HAIs are infections that occur while a patient is being treated in a hospital. Many of these infections can be prevented through the use of proper procedures and precautions. Infection reports compare the infections at a hospital to a national benchmark.

15-Day Readmission Rate
Patients should not normally be readmitted to a hospital within 15 days of a hospital stay for the same or a related condition. A low 15-Day readmission rate generally means the hospital is doing a better job of managing a patient’s condition and helping arrange proper post-hospital care coordination.
