Parkland Health & Hospital System
THCIC ID: 474000

After reviewing the ‘THCIC 2012 Hospital Quality Report Review’ that was released by THCIC, there is a slight difference in the data reported by ‘Dallas Fort Worth Hospital Council Foundation’, our THCIC Vendor, and Parkland Health & Hospital System numbers reported by THCIC.

After completing research on my own and with the help of ‘Dallas Fort Worth Hospital Council Foundation’ and THCIC, I found out the likely difference in the numbers being reported for Parkland Health & Hospital System is that THCIC suppresses and excludes records of any ‘sex_code’ that has an ICD-9-CM code indicating drug or alcohol use or a HIV diagnosis.

‘Dallas Fort Worth Hospital Council Foundation’ does not exclude these records when sending our files to THCIC for submission.

The average length of stay at Long Term Acute Care Hospitals is 25 days or longer. Central lines are utilized for prolonged periods during patient’s hospital stay for dialysis patients, antibiotic administration, high intensity patients with multiple drips, and with the elderly due to poor vein access.

In reviewing the data, the rates identified in this report, the denominator utilized in this report is the number of cases. We utilize line days, as per CDC recommendations, to obtain our central line associated blood stream infection rates.

Comment: Patients admitted with a diagnosis of iatrogenic pneumothorax (present on admission) were not excluded from the parameters for this report by THCIC for 2012 cases. This patient was admitted to our facility having the pneumothorax already, which was acquired due to lung surgery just prior to being transferred to us for rehabilitation services.
