a. The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) Patient Safety Indicators (PSI) software requires that the central venous catheter-related bloodstream infection be reported as a secondary diagnosis (rather than the principal diagnosis), but unlike the AHRQ PSI software, the secondary diagnosis could be present on admission. Consistent with the AHRQ PSI software, the following cases are excluded: admissions with a diagnosis of cancer or in an immunocompromised state. Rates prior to 2008 are not reported because of International Classification of Diseases, Ninth Revision coding changes.
b. Rates are adjusted by comorbidities and diagnosis-related group (DRG). The AHRQ PSI software was modified to not use the present on admission (POA) indicators (or estimates of the likelihood of POA for secondary diagnosis).
