New ratings of American hospitals released with quality study by HealthGrades
Date:10/20/2010

e 17 diagnoses and procedures studied.

  • All but two diagnoses and procedures saw reductions in the unadjusted mortality rates. Gastrointestinal surgeries and procedures and coronary interventional procedures were associated with an increase in unadjusted mortality of 8.76% and 9.26%, respectively.

  • The highest unadjusted mortality rates are among sepsis, respiratory failure, and gastrointestinal surgeries and procedures (20.59%, 19.45%, 10.29%, respectively).

  • The most improvement in unadjusted mortality was seen in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (18.73%), bowel obstruction (14.72%), heart attack (13.68%), and stroke (13.50%).

  • If all hospitals performed at the level of a 5-star rated hospital, 232,442 Medicare lives could potentially have been saved from 2007 through 2009.

  • Approximately 55.91% (129,949) of the potentially preventable deaths were associated with just four diagnoses: sepsis (48,809); pneumonia (29,017); respiratory failure (26,361); and heart failure (25,762).

  • On average, one in nine patients developed a hospital-acquired condition, across the nine procedures evaluated for inhospital complications, from 2007 to 2009.

  • On average, a typical patient would have a 80.40% lower risk of developing one or more inhospital complications by going to a 5-star rated hospital compared to a 1-star and a 63.64% lower risk of developing one or more inhospital complications by going to a 5-star compared to the U.S. hospital average.
