BACKGROUND: It is estimated that 9.3% of the population in the United States have diabetes mellitus (DM), 28% of which are undiagnosed. The high prevalence of DM makes it a common comorbid condition in hospitalized patients. In recent years, government agencies and healthcare systems have increasingly focused on 30-day readmission rates to determine the complexity of their patient populations and to improve quality. Thirty-day readmission rates for hospitalized patients with DM are reported to be between 14...

BACKGROUND Risk adjustment is needed to fairly compare central-line-associated bloodstream infection (CLABSI) rates between hospitals. Until 2017, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) methodology adjusted CLABSI rates only by type of intensive care unit (ICU). The 2017 CDC models also adjust for hospital size and medical school affiliation. We hypothesized that risk adjustment would be improved by including patient demographics and comorbidities from electronically available hospital discharge codes...

Advances in pediatric cardiac surgical and medical care have led to increased survival of patients with congenital heart disease (CHD). Consequently, many CHD patients survive long enough to require cardiac surgery as adults. Using the 2013 Nationwide Inpatient Sample (NIS) database, we compared costs and outcomes for adult patients undergoing surgery for treatment of CHD to a reference population of adults undergoing CABG. Patients were identified using International Classification of Diseases, Ninth Revision, Clinical Modification (ICD-9 CM) procedure codes...
