Description
The point map shows the Central Line - Associated Blood Stream Infection (CLABSI) overall standardized infection ratio (SIR) reported for acute care hospitals. The SIR summarizes performance across different types of intensive care units and wards. The color of the points represent whether the infection ratio is significantly higher, significantly lower, or the same as the NYS average (SIR=1) for the same year. The infection ratio for some acute care hospitals cannot be compared to the NYS average infection ratio because there were less than 50 central line days. All acute care hospitals are required to report certain hospital-acquired infections (HAIs) to the New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH). This includes central line-associated blood stream infections in intensive care units; surgical site infections following colon, hip replacement/revision, hysterectomy, and coronary artery bypass graft; and Clostridium difficile infections. 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.
