New Jersey publishes hospital performance report

Last week, the state of New Jersey released its 2010 Hospital Performance Report in which hospital acquired central line-associated bloodstream infections (CLABSIs) rates were included for the first time.  New Jersey has also been collecting surgical site infections (SSIs) after coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery, SSIs after abdominal hysterectomy, catheter associated urinary tract infections (CAUTI) in adult ICUs, and SSIs after knee arthroplasty since January 2010.  These measures will be included in the 2011 report.
