Jefferson University Hospitals

Quality & Safety Reports

Quality and Safety are top priorities for all Jefferson staff. We are continuously working on developing a culture of safety, quality and collaboration and include patients and their families as key partners in these efforts.

In addition to the quality measures reported on our website, several federal and state resources can provide specific information on outcomes for a diagnosis or procedure at a specific hospital. We hold ourselves to the highest standards and want our record to be transparent to our patients and community.

Preventing healthcare-associated infections is an important initiative to reduce complications, shorten hospitalizations and ensure the highest quality of care provided to our patients.

The Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems or HCAHPs is a standardized survey of patients perspectives on their experiences during a hospital stay that enables us to gauge how we are doing state, regional and national benchmarks.

The return of patients to the hospital within a month of discharge from a hospital is a persistent, yet sometimes preventable issue in American healthcare.

Falls are a common cause of injury in the community and hospital settings. Learn what Jefferson is doing to reduce the risk of additional fall-related injuries to our patients.
