Accidental Puncture and Laceration

Measure Definition

Measure Definition

This measure compares the observed number of accidental puncture and laceration per 1,000 patients with the statistically expected number of accidental puncture and laceration. The score displayed is a ratio (observed over expected), which is compared to the national average of 1.0 (PSI 15).

The "value" for a particular measure includes the performance designation and the corresponding score. In certain cases, facilities may display the same score for the same measure, but differ in their performance designation due to a difference in the number of patients. Generally, facilities with fewer patients are less likely to be ranked as low or high performers.

This measure compares the observed number of accidental puncture and laceration per 1,000 patients with the statistically expected number of accidental puncture and laceration. The score displayed is a ratio (observed over expected), which is compared to the national average of 1.0 (PSI 15). Lower is better.
