Preventing Serious Complications uses data from the Federal Agency for Health Research & Quality's Patient Safety Indicators collected during July 1, 2016 – June 30, 2018.

Preventing Healthcare-Associated Infections uses data collected by the Federal Centers for Disease Control (CDC) for the October 1, 2017 – September 30, 2018 reporting period. A facility's rating is the ratio of the number of infections in a facility over the expected number of infections. A lower number is better.
CompareMaine reports performance ratings using Standardized Infection Ratio (SIR), which adjusts for differences in the characteristics of hospitals and patients. A SIR greater than 1.0 means that there were more HAIs in a facility than were predicted. A SIR lower than 1.0 indicates the facility had fewer HAIs than were predicted.

Preventing Falls with Injury uses data that Maine hospitals have submitted to the Maine Health Data Organization for the reporting period January 1, 2018 – December 31, 2018. A facility’s rating is based on the number of hospital patient falls with minor or serious injury per 1,000 patient days. A lower number is better. Read more about this data and the methodology
Preventing Pressure Ulcers uses data that Maine hospitals have submitted to the Maine Health Data Organization for the reporting period January 1, 2018 – December 31, 2018. Once every three months, hospitals perform a thorough skin examination of every patient in each adult inpatient acute care unit. A facility’s rating is the percentage of those patients who had a stage 2-or-greater pressure ulcer. A lower number is better. Read more about this data and the methodology
Unplanned Hospital-Wide Readmissions uses data collected by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) for the reporting period July 1, 2017 – June 30, 2018. A facility’s rating is based on the percentage of Medicare patients, age 65 and older who had an unplanned readmission to the hospital within 30 days of being treated and released from an earlier hospital stay. The scores are risk-adjusted, meaning they account for a patient’s age and how sick they were when they were hospitalized. A lower number is better. Read more about this data and the methodology
