Adult discharges age 18 and over with a principal diagnosis of diabetes with short-term complications (ketoacidosis, hyperosmolar, coma) (ICD-9-CM code 250.10-250.13, 250.20-250.23, 250.30-250.33). Obstetric admissions and transfers from other institutions are excluded.

Comments

Rates are adjusted by age and gender using the total U.S. population for 2000 as the standard population. When reporting is by age, the adjustment is by gender only; when reporting is by gender, the adjustment is by age only.

Although not all States participate in the HCUP database, the Nationwide Inpatient Sample is weighted to give national estimates using weights based on all U.S. community, non-rehabilitation hospitals in the American Hospital Association Annual Survey of Hospitals.

Tables were created using version 2.1, revision 3, of the AHRQ PQI software. This measure is referred to as indicator 1 in the AHRQ PQI software documentation. More information about the AHRQ Quality Indicators is available at http://www.qualityindicators.ahrq.gov.
