The VHHA Board of Directors approved making publicly available a Virginia report card that measures aggregate quality and patient safety performance of Virginia’s hospitals. Information contained herein details progress made by Virginia hospitals and health systems in select quality and patient satisfaction elements of performance. The improvement targets are reflected in the Virginia scorecard.
For CLABSI, Virginia aims for a 50 percent reduction from current infection rates. For CAUTI, readmission, mortality and patient satisfaction, the target is for Virginia to be among the top five states in each measure. We recognize that this target will move over time as every hospital and state pursues improvement as well.
