a The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) Patient Safety Indicators (PSI) software requires that the postoperative pulmonary embolism or deep vein thrombosis be reported as a secondary diagnosis (rather than the principal diagnosis), but unlike the AHRQ PSI software, the secondary diagnosis could be present on admission. In addition, the interruption of vena cava is not verifiable as following surgery. Consistent with the AHRQ PSI software, obstetric conditions and admissions in which the interruption of vena cava is the only operating room procedure are excluded.

b Rates are adjusted by age, comorbidities, major diagnostic category (MDC), diagnosis-related group (DRG), and transfers into the hospital. When reporting is by age, the adjustment is by comorbidities, MDC, DRG, and transfers into the hospital. The AHRQ PSI software was modified to not use the present on admission (POA) indicators (or estimates of the likelihood of POA for secondary diagnosis).

DSU - Data do not meet the criteria for statistical reliability, data quality, or confidentiality.
