Outpatient surgical care: timely antibiotic before surgery
It is standard practice to provide antibiotics to all surgical outpatients within an hour before their surgery begins. This helps prevent infections that can complicate recovery.
About This Measure
This measure tracks the percentage of outpatients having surgery who got an antibiotic at the right time - within one hour before surgery.
Northwestern Memorial Hospital wants to provide the most up to date data. For this measure, our data is from a more recent time period than the benchmark time period.
Note: In this case, a higher number is better.
