The rates displayed in this graph for CLABSI are from data reported to the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services for discharges July 2011 through June 2012; all the other measures are for January 2012 through June 2012.

More recent data is also available reporting discharges from January 2012 through December 2012.

Not Available: The number of cases is too small to reliably tell how well a hospital is performing.

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.

  • A score’s confidence interval that is less than 1 means that the hospital had fewer infections than hospitals of similar type and size.
  • A score’s confidence interval that includes 1 means that the hospital’s infections score was no different than hospitals of similar type and size.
  • A score’s confidence interval that is more than 1 means that the hospital had more infections than hospitals of similar type and size.


Standardized Infection Ratio (SIR) National Benchmark = 1. The column labeled “United States Ave.” refers to the National Benchmark.

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.
