Are the surgical site infection data adjusted for risk level?
Yes, the results in the comparison tables and profiles reflect the results of statistical tests that take into account the risk level of the surgery. These tests compare each facility to either national data and/or to data for all facilities that report to the department. Also, data for each facility are reported by risk level in the "Data" section of the tables.
