Ambulatory Surgery Quality Information

Ambulatory Surgery Center
CHART # 1 of 3:
Nausea and/or Vomiting Requiring Intervention


                                                                                 How to read this chart: A lower score is better



Measure Definition of Nausea and Vomiting Post-Operatively: This chart shows the number of patients who experienced nausea and /or vomiting after surgery that did not respond to initial treatment and whose symptoms persisted through recovery.

Why is this important? Nausea and vomiting are concerns of many patients, and the discomfort of this side effect can affect the recovery time from surgery.

What are we doing to improve this indicator? Patient charts are reviewed and discussed with staff to determine issues that could help prevent this in the future.

CHART # 2 of 3:

Post Surgical or Post Procedure Wound Infections

Measure Definition: This chart shows wound infections that occurred after a surgery or medical procedure that were treated with antibiotics. It does not include infections that existed prior to the procedure.
