Following surgery, patients are at risk for complications affecting their airway, breathing, and circulation. When a patient experiences these complications it is a medical emergency. Without proper treatment they can lead to death.

How Will This Help Me? When patients receive high quality care, they are more likely to achieve a good medical outcome (result). This can lower a patient’s risk for complications.
Our report will tell you how successful Minnesota hospitals are in avoiding post-surgical complications as measured by mortality (death) rates.
Mortality Ratings - A high mortality rate may not be due to medical errors. Some hospitals may experience a greater number of deaths because they see more sick patients. Our mortality rate information is shown as a comparison between a hospital’s actual mortality rate and the rate expected for that hospital. A rate that is the “Same” or “Better” than expected signifies high-quality care.
About Our Report - Our Care Results reports are based on quality measures developed by the Agency for Healthcare Quality and Research (AHRQ), and made available on HealthScores by the Minnesota Hospital Association. This report is based on information from hospital patient medical records for services provided between October 2010 and September 2011. Your hospital’s rating will vary depending on how many patients achieved a good medical outcome. Talk with your care team if you have questions or concerns.
