Hospital Quality Data Quality Outcomes from Hospitalcompare.gov

The Hospital Compare website provides, by hospital, outcome-based measures.  Below are a few examples of the timeliness of care and prevention effort outcomes at Speare.

Hospital Quality Data

Harm Events: although infrequent and unfortunate occurrences do happen in hospitals despite best efforts to provide safe, quality of care.  Preventing harm events in hospitals is a national and state effort. At Speare, we have chosen to participate in a national effort to reduce harm events sponsored by CMS/ Partnership for Patients and coordinated by the NH Hospital Association.  Speare is participating in its 7th year in the Partnership for Patients and is showing a continued downward trend in our preventable harm events.

Preventable harm events are considered the following:
  • Catheter-Associated Urinary Tract Infection
  • Central Line-Associated Bloodstream Infections
  • Surgical Site Infections
  • Serious Reportable Events
  • Falls with Injury
  • Adverse Drug Events with Significant Harm
  • Certain Events with Harm
