EJGH Once Again Earns Four Star Rating From CMS

East Jefferson General Hospital earned four stars for the third consecutive term from the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) when the organization released its much-anticipated Overall Hospital Quality Star Ratings this past week.

EJGH outperformed all other area hospitals with its four stars and the measure places the institution among the top tier of the nearly 5,000 rated hospitals in the country, according to data released by CMS. This rating comes on the heels of both Leapfrog and CareChex, two independent hospital rating services naming EJGH as the region's number one hospital.

Average time patients who came to the emergency department with broken bones

Description of Measure

Average time patients who came to the emergency department with broken bones had to wait before receiving pain medication.

Why is this Important?

For all patients 2 years and older who came to the emergency department with a broken arm or leg, this shows the average time they waited before receiving pain medication. Long waits before a patient is treated may be a sign that the emergency department is understaffed or overcrowded. For patients with broken bones, long waits without pain medication cause unnecessary increased suffering.

Lower numbers are better.

Data reported are based on discharges from Fourth Quarter 2012 through Third Quarter 2013

 

Average time patients who came to the emergency department before they were seen by a healthcare professional

Description of Measure

Average time patients spent in the emergency department before they were seen by a healthcare professional.

Why is this Important?

For patients who were later sent home from the emergency department, this measure shows the average (median) time in minutes, from the time they arrived until the time they were seen by a healthcare professional. It does not include patients who were admitted to the hospital, who died in the emergency department, or who left without being seen. Delays in being seen by a healthcare provider may be a sign that the emergency department is understaffed or overcrowded. This may result in delays in treatment or lower quality care. In addition, long delays can create more stress for patients and families.
