Washington Hospital Quality
A service of the Washington State Hospital Association

What is this?

The overall score for serious complications is based on how often adult Medicare patients had certain serious, but potentially preventable, complications related to medical or surgical inpatient hospital care. Lower is better.

Why this matters?

Complications can result in the need for longer hospital stays and harm to patients. Hospitals work to reduce complications. A high complication rate may be an indicator of quality problems within an organization.
