Quality Report Cards (Updated April 2012)

Categories

Heart Attack (pdf)
A heart attack (acute myocardial infarction or AMI) occurs when blood stops flowing to a part of the heart muscle. The lack of blood flow is often caused by a clot in one of the heart's blood vessels. Without the oxygen carried in the blood, part of the heart muscle dies or is damaged.

Heart Failure (pdf)
Heart failure, also called congestive heart failure, is a life-threatening condition in which the heart can no longer pump enough blood to the rest of the body.

Pneumonia (pdf)
Pneumonia is an inflammation of the lungs caused by an infection. Many different organisms can cause it, including bacteria, viruses and fungi. Pneumonia is a common illness that affects millions of people each year in the United States.

Surgical Care Improvement (pdf)
The risk of wound infection can significantly be reduced by making sure patients get the right medications at the right time on the day of their surgery.
