Patient Safety Concerns
The Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) monitors data collected by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) involving patient safety concerns. The data reveals potential adverse events and in-hospital complications that occur after procedures and surgeries. For the year 2015, the patient safety concern at Unity Point Health – Trinity involved:
- Accidental Laceration and Puncture Risk-Adjusted Rate – 1.63 per 1000 patients or one incident out of 91 patients. This risk-adjusted rate was slightly higher than the Illinois state average of 1.45 per 1000. The IDPH determined that this risk-adjusted rate was “not statistically significantly better or worse than the state average.”
The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) gathers information on hospital readmission rates and shares the publicly available information on their Hospital Compare website. The readmission rate can provide valuable insight as to whether the medical center is providing the best services and care to prevent complications and ensure that some patients can make an easy transition from a nursing facility or their home. Between 07/01/2012 and 06/30/2015, the readmission rates occurring at Unity Point Health – Trinity involved:
- Pneumonia Patients Who Required Readmittance Back into the Facility within 30 Days after Their Discharge – 18.9 percent, which is slightly higher than the Illinois state average of 17.56 percent.
- Heart Failure Patients Who Required Admittance Back into the Hospital after 30 Days after Their Discharge – 21.0 percent, which is slightly lower than the Illinois state average of 22.09 percent.
Thirty-Day Mortality Rate
The HHS website Hospital Compare releases publicly available information on the thirty-day mortality rates of patients who died within the first month after being admitted to the facility. These measurable indicators on patient mortality provide valuable insight to determine if adverse outcomes could be correlated to the level of care the hospital provides its patients. Between 07/01/2012 and 06/30/2015, the thirty-day mortality rate at Unity Point Health – Trinity involved:
- Pneumonia Patients Who Died within 30 Days after Being Admitted to the Facility – 20.8 percent, which is significantly higher than the Illinois state average of 16.32 percent.
- Heart Failure Patients Who Died within 30 Days after Being Admitted to the Hospital – 12.8 percent, which is slightly higher than the Illinois state average of 11.83 percent.
Infection Prevention Staffing
The state of Illinois mandates specific licensing requirements that every Illinois hospital develop and enforce an infection prevention and control program. This measurable indicator is based on the number of staff members trained in infection prevention and control for every 100 hospital beds. For the year 2015, the infection prevention staffing for this facility included:
- 0 per 100 Beds – The number of infection prevention control staff members for every 100 beds.
