Outpatient Quality Measures
The outpatient quality measures include care of acute myocardial infarction
(heart attack) and chest pain for patients who are transferred out to
another hospital and surgical care for those patients who have an outpatient surgery.
Heart Attack and Chest Pain
Quality measures indicate how many patients at Southeast Georgia Health
System receive treatments commonly regarded as effective in treating or
preventing heart attacks. We compare our scores to other facilities at
the national and state level.
|Heart Attack and Chest Pain Indicators
||Camden average (01/16-06/16)

|Number of records reviewed for these indicators during time period
|Aspirin at arrival for heart attack or chest pain
Aspirin on Arrival-This score shows the percentage of heart attack patients who received
aspirin within 24 hours of arriving. Aspirin can help break up blood clots
and prevent new ones from forming. It may reduce the severity of a heart attack.
* Georgia and US average percentages are delayed 9-12 months
