Description

The point map shows the hospital-acquired infections (HAIs) reported for acute care hospitals. The initial view of the map displays the total hospital acquired infections for the state. To drill down to a smaller geographic area, click directly on the area of the map or use the plus sign to zoom in on the map. The map can be filtered by year or indicator name by changing these options under the Filters tab. PLEASE NOTE: Because of the complicated nature of the risk-adjustment methodology used to produce the HAI rates, the advice of a statistician is recommended before attempting to manipulate the data. Hospital-specific risk-adjusted rates cannot simply be combined. In addition, due to NYSDOH validation audits which may involve data from both the current and previous calendar year, a revised data file will be published the year after the original data file was released. For more information, check out http://www.health.ny.gov/statistics/facilities/hospital/hospital_acquired_infections/ or go to the "About" tab.

Notes
Notes
This is an electronic version of the hospital data summarized in annual HAI reports, available on the DOH public website at: http://www.health.ny.gov/statistics/facilities/hospital/hospital_acquired_infections/. The Department of Health grants users permission to reproduce materials published by the Department on this Website so long as the original report, "Hospital-Acquired Infections, New York State [year]" and applicable data caveats as described in the report, and repeated here in the data dictionary, are referenced. Hospitals submit the required HAI data using the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's (CDC's) National Healthcare Safety Network (NHSN) website. The NYSDOH validates the data using several methods: checks for inconsistent or duplicate information; checks for completeness in reporting using secondary datasets; and checks for the validity of the data by auditing a sample of medical charts. As a result of these validation activities, hospitals may be asked to modify their original data submissions.
