St. Charles Surgical Hospital Receives National Recognition
Date:9/17/2013

New Orleans, LA (PRWEB) September 17, 2013

The American College of Surgeons National Surgical Quality Improvement Program (ACS NSQIP®) has recognized St. Charles Surgical Hospital as one of 37 ACS NSQIP participating hospitals that have achieved meritorious outcomes for surgical patient care. As a participant in ACS NSQIP, St. Charles Surgical Hospital is required to track the outcomes of inpatient and outpatient surgical procedures and collect data that directs patient safety and the quality of surgical care improvements. “It has been our mission from the beginning to provide patients with the best surgical care, delivered with efficiency and effectiveness,” states Dr. Scott Sullivan, SCSH Co-Founder. “We are honored to be recognized for quality surgical care along side such prestigious institutions such as Stanford and Chapel Hill,” continues Co-Founder, Dr. Frank DellaCroce.

The ACS NSQIP recognition program commends a select group of hospitals for achieving meritorious outcome performances related to patient management in nine clinical areas: mortality, unplanned intubation, ventilator > 48 hours, renal failure, DVT (deep vein thrombosis, thrombophlebitis and pulmonary embolism); cardiac incidents (cardiac arrest and myocardial infarction); respiratory (pneumonia); SSI (surgical site infections-superficial and deep incisional and organ-space SSIs); and urinary tract infection. St. Charles Surgical Hospital achieved the distinction based on its outstanding composite quality score in the nine areas listed above. Risk-adjusted data from the July 2013 ACS NSQIP Semiannual Report, which presents data from the 2012 calendar year, were used to determine which hospitals demonstrated meritorious outcomes.

ACS NSQIP is the only nationally validated quality improvement program that measures and enhances the care of surgical patients. The goal of ACS NSQIP is to reduce surgical morbidity (infection or illness related to a surgical procedure) and surgical mortality (death related to a surgical procedure) and to provide a firm foundation for surgeons to apply what is known as the "best scientific evidence" to the practice of surgery. Furthermore, when adverse effects from surgical procedures are reduced and/or eliminated, a reduction in health care costs follows. ACS NSQIP is a major program of the American College of Surgeons and is currently used in over 500 hospitals.

The American College of Surgeons is a scientific and educational organization of surgeons that was founded in 1913 to raise the standards of surgical practice and to improve the care of the surgical patient. The ACS is dedicated to the ethical and competent practice of surgery. Its achievements have significantly influenced the course of scientific surgery in America and have established it as an important advocate for all surgical patients. The ACS has more than 74,000 members and it is the largest organization of surgeons in the world.
