National Rankings

In a comparison analysis to other medical centers and hospitals throughout the U.S., Iroquois Memorial Hospital maintains an overall “B-” score, ranking it in the 41st percentile. The rank is calculated by using publicly available data including patient flow, initial assessments, patient satisfaction and reported complications. A low to median score might indicate a high percentage of medical errors and mistakes happening at the facility.

The emergency department at Iroquois Memorial Hospital is a crucial component to providing immediate medical care during emergent situations. However, the information it collected by Analytics MD suggests that patient satisfaction ranks between low and good at the facility. In fact, the incoming patient flow (measuring the efficiency where patient’s medical health problems are initially evaluated) and the discharge patient flow (measuring the efficiency of treatment provided to less sick patients) both ranked in the 74th percentile.

Even so, the admitted patient flow, measuring the efficiency of how sicker patients are treated ranked low in these 36th percentile. Additionally, the information revealed that there were many significantly frustrated patients leaving the Iroquois Memorial Hospital emergency department, ranked the facility in the 85th percentile of dissatisfied patients.

Illinois State Designations

Iroquois Memorial Hospital and Resident Home maintains one specific state designation including:

  • Perinatal I – The hospital as a part of the state’s Regionalized Perinatal System that was initially created to improve pregnancy outcomes to childbearing women and their newborns. The program was designed to reduce the incident rate of perinatal complications using early identification and appropriate treatment/procedures by combining nursing, medical and other necessary ancillary services during labor and delivery.

As a Level I perinatal hospital, the facility must provide childbearing women appropriate care. However, the level of care only involves uncomplicated pregnancies for women who have not had medical complications in the past. While the facility does not have a neonatal intensive care unit or special care nursery, it does make available numerous sub-specialist medical professionals and access to the facility and specialized equipment.

Patient Safety Concerns

The Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) monitors hospital discharge information. This measurement works as an effective inpatient quality indicator involving potential complications and adverse effects occurring at the facility. The data collected by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ). The data collected for the year 2015 revealed the following patient safety concerns for Iroquois Memorial Hospital that includes:

  • Postoperative Deep Vein Thrombosis (Clotting) or Lung Embolism Rate – The facility has a risk-adjusted rate of 21.64 per 1000 or 3 incidents out of 129 patients. This number is nearly 4 times the Illinois state average of 5.62 per 1000. Because of that, the IDPH recognized that the risk-adjusted rate is “statistically significantly worse than the state’s average.”
  • Accidental Laceration or Puncture Rate – The facility has a risk-adjusted rate of 3.9 per 1000 or 2 out of 618 patients experiencing an accidental puncture or laceration after surgery, procedure or treatment. The IDPH recognizes this risk-adjusted rate is “not statistically significantly better or worse than the state’s average.”

Inpatient Mortality Rate

Data collected by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) and reviewed by the Illinois Department of Public Health provides inpatient quality indicators on the level of care every hospital in the state provides. These numbers help determine ways to reduce short-term mortality rates. For the year 2015, Iroquois Memorial Hospital's measurable inpatient mortality rates included:

  • Pneumonia Patient Risk-Adjusted Mortality Rate – The facility had a risk-adjusted rate of 29.93 per 1000 or 1 out of 41 patients. The Illinois Department of Health determined this number to be slightly higher than the Illinois state’s average of 23.48 per 1000, making it “not statistically significantly better or worse than the state’s average."

★★★★★
Extremely impressed with this law firm. They took control of a bad motorcycle crash that left my uncle seriously injured. Without any guarantee of a financial recovery, they went out and hired accident investigators and engineers to help prove how the accident happened. I am grateful that they worked on a contingency fee basis as there was no way we could have paid for these services on our own. Ethan Armstrong, Google User
