Table 4 Overall mortality (%) according to unadjusted measurement W30D, S30D and IH30D, ranges for individual hospitals

From: Comparing hospital mortality – how to count does matter for patients hospitalized for acute myocardial infarction (AMI), stroke and hip fracture

  AMI Stroke Hip fracture
W30D 18.6 (14.6 – 26.4) 17.4 (13.6 – 26.7) 7.6 (1.6 – 12.8)
S30D 19.7 (14.6 – 26.6) 17.9 (10.9 – 27.7) 8.1 (0 – 33.3)
IH30D§ 16.2 (7.0 – 21.7) 14.1 (6.9 – 21.6) 3.6 (1.3 – 6.4)
  1. AMI: Acute myocardial infarction.
  2. W30D: In-and-out-of-hospital mortality within 30 days, attributing the outcome to all hospitals by fraction of time spent in each hospital for transferred patients.
  3. S30D: In-and-out-of-hospital mortality within 30 days, patients treated at one hospital only.
  4. §IH30D: In-hospital mortality within 30 days, for each hospital admission.
