safety score
infoBloodstream infections
 
 
 
 
 
This Rating shows bloodstream infections that ICU patients contracted while they had central-line catheters in place, compared with national averages published by the CDC. When possible, it adjusts for the fact that different types of ICUs have different infection rates.
 
 
 
 
 
infoAvoiding readmissions
 
 
 
 
 
This Rating is based on the chance that a Medicare patient will be readmitted to a hospital, for any cause, within 30 days after being discharged.
 
 
 
 
 
infoDrug Information
 
 
 
 
 
This Rating is based on the percentage of patients who said that staff always or usually explained about new medication, from government surveys of patients' experiences.
 
 
 
 
 
infoSurgery - adverse events
 
 
 
 
 
This Rating is based on adverse event rates (a measure based on mortality or staying in the hospital longer than expected) for close to 100 surgical procedures. The rates are compared with predicted averages based on the kinds of patients the hospital cares for and the types of surgeries it performs.
