Infection Prevention Report
Infection prevention refers to activities performed to reduce the risk of infections, and although it is a longstanding activity for hospitals the practices do not have well-established comparative indicators.
We follow federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines for the identification and public reporting of infections. Like other hospitals, we practice standard precautions to reduce infections and practice evidence-based strategies to prevent Hospital-Acquired Infections (HAI).
Infections are measured in both rates and a standardized infection ratio (SIR), which we are including both of the metrics in the spirit of transparency. The first section shows our infection data as rates which are calculated by using the number of infections divided by the number of line days multiplied by 1,000.
Many other sections of this report also have infection prevention indicators. The Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Flower Mound (THFM) metric below represents the performance of THFM only.

Core Measures Report
Core Measures are national standardized processes and best practices to improve patient care. These processes are designed to provide the right care at the right time for common conditions such as Stroke, VTE, Sepsis, ED throughput and Perinatal Care.
