Inpatient surgical care bundle

Surgery is a serious procedure, or operation, performed in an outpatient or inpatient setting by a surgeon. Surgical care improvement process measures include recommended treatments that are known to get the best results for patients undergoing surgical procedures. Without these treatments, some patients may not have the best outcomes possible. Specific interventions should be followed to minimize surgical complications and increase the chance of survival. All the recommended treatments are referred to as a bundle. Below is a list of some of the interventions included in our surgical care improvement bundle quality measure.

About this measure

This measure tracks the percent of patients who were eligible to receive each of the surgical interventions, and received all of them. Sometimes, patients can be ineligible to receive a certain intervention. For example, if a patient has an allergy to a recommended medication, they should not receive that medication and they would not be counted in the measure.
