Measuring the Quality of Care at the Cedars-Sinai Center for Minimally Invasive Gynecologic Surgery
The quality of care given to patients at the Cedars-Sinai Minimally Invasive Gynecologic Surgery Center is continually monitored. The center regularly monitors and reports:
• Its rates for hysterectomies performed for benign conditions by approach (laparascopically, abdominally and vaginally) and compared to U.S. averages
• The average length of stay for patients having hysterectomies performed laparoscopically, abdominally and vaginally at Cedars-Sinai.
The data presented in these reports reflects the care given by members of the Center of Excellence, staff and faculty physicians and attending physicians.
Other measures of the quality of care given to patients at Cedars-Sinai are measures on a hospital-wide basis. These include:
- Nursing excellence
- Preventing hospital-acquired infections
- Surgical care, including infection prevention and blood clot prevention
- Consumer perceptions of Cedars-Sinai
- Patient satisfaction
