Sentinel Events by Military Hospital

Report
5/9/2017

We encourage our medical staffs to report all types of patient safety events – injuries, illnesses and especially deaths. Sentinel events are those that result in harm to a patient and that require immediate reporting, response and investigation. More reported events don’t necessarily mean more events have occurred. It could mean that more providers have reported events. We use this measure to see how many patient safety events are reported. This measure is a facility-specific one that shows you what sentinel events occurred in individual hospitals or clinics.

Access to Acute and Primary Care Appointments PDF Version

Report
5/9/2017

Seeing your provider in a timely manner is important to you – and to us. Our goal is to ensure you receive the right level of care, at the right time, by the right provider. This measure is used across the health care industry and lets us know if we are meeting our access to care standards. The MHS access to care standard for patients to receive an acute appointment is within 24 hours (1 day) and a routine appointment within 7 days. If the military hospital or clinic cannot meet these standards with a patient's primary care manager, the facility will schedule an appointment with another provider.access to care standards. If the military hospital or clinic can't get you an appointment with your Primary Care Manager within the standards, they will get you an appointment with another provider. We monitor this metric on a monthly basis and make more appointments available when the measure shows we need to. This measure looks at acute and routine primary care appointments.

Catheter and Central Line Infections in Military Hospitals

Report
5/9/2017

A catheter is a drainage tube that is inserted by a doctor into a patient’s urinary bladder through the urethra and is left in place to collect urine while a patient is immobile or incontinent. When not put in correctly or kept clean, or if left in place for long periods of time, catheters can become an easy way for germs to enter the body and cause serious infections in the urinary tract. These infections are called catheter-associated urinary tract infections (CAUTIs), and they can cause additional illness or be deadly. We track the number of infections developed by patients in the ICU because of catheter-associated urinary tract infections. We look at the number of infections compared to the number of expected infections based on the number of patients who had catheters during the time frame being measured.
