a The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) Pediatric Quality Indicators (PDI) software requires that the accidental puncture or laceration be reported as a secondary diagnosis (rather than the principal diagnosis), but unlike the AHRQ PDI software, the secondary diagnosis could be present on admission. Consistent with the AHRQ PDI software, obstetric admissions, admissions involving spinal surgery, normal newborns, and neonates with a birth weight less than 500 grams are excluded.

b Rates are adjusted by major diagnostic category and type of therapeutic procedure. The AHRQ PDI software was modified to not use the present on admission (POA) indicators (or estimates of the likelihood of POA for secondary diagnosis).

Key: SE: standard error.
