a Consistent with the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) Patient Safety Indicators (PSI) software, admissions with expected low mortality are identified by Medicare severity diagnosis-related group (MS-DRG) or DRG, depending on the date of discharge. Excludes admissions with cancer, admissions in an immunocompromised state, or admissions involving a traumatic injury.

b Rates are adjusted by age, gender, age-gender interactions, comorbidities, 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).

DNC - Data were not collected.

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

Key: SE: standard error.

State estimates are from the State Inpatient Databases (SID), and not all States participate in HCUP. Estimates for the total U.S. are from the Nationwide Inpatient Sample, which is drawn from the SID and weighted to give national estimates.
