Quality Indicator

What is the mortality rate?

Hospitals seek to prevent patient deaths wherever possible. Not all deaths can be avoided, and some patients have higher risks than others or choose to discontinue treatment, but some deaths are preventable.  A lower than expected mortality rate may indicate that a hospital provides a higher level of patient care – a good indicator of the quality of the hospital.

Mortality rate is the statistical measure of the number of people who die. Cardiology mortality rate for this measure is expressed as the observed (actual) mortality in the hospital (deaths per 100 patients). A quality hospital will work hard to improve the quality of cardiac surgical care. For example, the hospital will strive to make cardiac surgery as safe as possible by working to reduce the occurrence of potentially deadly infections among surgical patients.
