a The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) Patient Safety Indicators (PSI) software requires that the hip fracture 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 hip fracture repair is not verifiable as following surgery. Consistent with the AHRQ PSI software, excludes obstetric cases; admissions for seizure, syncope, stroke, coma, cardiac arrest, poisoning, trauma, delirium and other psychoses, anoxic brain injury, metastatic cancer, lymphoid/bone malignancy, or self-inflicted injury; admissions for diseases and disorders of the musculoskeletal system and connective tissue; and admissions in which hip fracture repair is the only operating room procedure.

b Rates are adjusted by major diagnostic category. 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.
