Surgical care is evaluated based on mortality rates within 30 days for different types of surgery and the percentage of surgical site infections that occur. O/E ratios (Observed to Expected Ratio) are a way of comparing our specific, “observed” outcomes at NCH against industrywide “expected” outcomes. The O/E Ratio allows health care providers to gauge whether their observed outcomes for the surgery were better, the same, or worse than what would be expected given the existing underlying risk factors of the patient.
|Better Than U.S. Average||At or Near U.S. Average||Worse Than U.S. Average||No National Average
or Too Few Cases
This indicates if a high or low score is best for this metric. In some case the desired performance will be neutral. In this case the desired performance is neither high or low and a color rating is not assigned to the statistic of that metric..
|General surgery mortality O/E ratio||Low||1||0.89|
|General Surgical Site Infections O/E ratio||Low||1||1.21|
|Vascular surgery mortality O/E ratio||Low||1||0.92|
