More recent data is also available reporting discharges from July 2011 through June 2012.
Healthcare Associated Infections are reported using a Standardized Infection Ratio (SIR). This calculation compares the number of Central Line Associated Bloodstream Infections (CLABSI) in a hospital intensive care unit or Surgical Site Infections (SSI) from operative procedures performed in a hospital to a national benchmark based on data reported to NHSN from 2006 – 2008. Scores for Catheter Associated Urinary Tract Infections (CAUTI) are compared to a national benchmark based on data reported to NHSN in 2009. The results are adjusted based on certain factors such as the type and size of a hospital or ICU for CLABSI and CAUTI, and based on certain factors related to the patient and surgery that was conducted for SSI.
Lower SIRS are better. A score of zero (0) – meaning no CLABSIs, CAUTIs or SSIs – is best.
The column labeled "U.S. Ave" refers to the National Benchmark.
