 INFECTION PREVENTION & PATIENT SAFETY CONTINUED
HOI AMBULATORY SURGERY CENTERS’ SAFE PRACTICES
The CMS Ambulatory Surgical Center Quality Reporting (ASCQR) Program uses these standardized measures to determine quality of care in the outpatient setting.
All-Cause Hospital Transfers per 1,000 Procedures
(Lower is better)
0.31
HOI Ambulatory Surgery Centers
0.91
National
Wrong Procedure Performed per 1,000 Procedures
(Lower is better)
0.00
HOI Ambulatory Centers
0.02 National
     A high rate of unanticipated hospital transfers may be an indicator of quality care concerns. HOI’s transfer rate is well below the ASCQR benchmark.
Normothermia Compliance Rate
The HOI ambulatory surgery centers have protocols in place to ensure patients are safe. This includes prevention of medical errors such as wrong-site surgeries, of which HOI ASCs had zero (0) events.
Timely Antibiotic Administration Compliance Rate
(Higher is better)
100%
HOI Ambulatory Centers
97%
National
(Higher is better)
100%
HOI Ambulatory Centers
99%

      Maintaining normothermia (normal body temperature) pre, peri and post-operatively is vital for preventing surgical site infections. HOI ambulatory surgery centers achieved 100% normothermia compliance in 2018.
Infection prevention is one of the most meaningful quality metrics for HOI ambulatory surgery centers. One of the measures that reduces the risk of infection is timely antibiotic administration.
