What the Complication/infection rate means:

The percentage rates reported on this page reflect each hospital's unique population, and should not be compared between hospitals. Instead, it is strongly recommended consumers compare each hospital on the basis of whether their rates are "as expected", "lower than expected", or "higher than expected".

The percentage rate is:

  • Lower than Expected—Fewer complications/infections than expected given how sick patients were
  • As Expected—Expected number of complications/infections given how sick patients were
  • Higher than Expected—More complications/infections than expected given how sick patients were

"X" is less than 30 cases; "Too few cases" is less than 5 cases.
