Surgical Quality Improvement
July 2017 – June 2018
The American College of Surgeons National Surgical Quality Improvement Program (ACS NSQIP®) objectively measures and reports risk-adjusted surgical outcomes based on a defined sampling and abstraction methodology. These outcomes data reflect Cleveland Clinic’s overall neurosurgery ACS NSQIP performance benchmarked against 396 participating sites.
|Neurosurgery Outcomes (396 Sites)||N||Observed||Expected|
|30 Day Mortality||889||0.34%||1.26%|
|30 Day Morbidity||889||6.64%||6.58%|
|Ventilator > 48 hours||883||1.13%||0.87%|
|Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) / Pulmonary Embolus||889||1.69%||1.90%|
|Urinary Tract Infection (UTI)||889||1.01%||1.28%|
|Surgical Site Infection (SSI)||888||2.48%||1.83%|
|Return to Operating Room (ROR)||889||4.05%||3.32%|
