What are we doing to improve:


UC Irvine Department of Radiology is committed to providing efficient use of imaging procedures in our hospital outpatient departments. We
work continuously to reduce unnecessary exposure of our patients to contrast materials and/or radiation. Our improvement plans include
constant monitoring of compliance with evidence-based practice guidelines to protect patient safety and to avoid imaging tests that patients may
not need. We also monitor ordering patterns and collaborate with our medical specialties and departments to improve the ordering practices
among referring physicians.

illness and injury. We strive to provide excellent care during treatment while improving our customer service and the patient experience. Our
improvement plans include keeping patients informed about their care throughout their journey in the ED; reducing wait time for care, and the time to
see a physician. The nursing staff provides a bedside introduction to keep patient’s informed of their plan of care. Daily leadership rounds are conducted
with and extensive shift-change communications among clinical staff.

UC Irvine Comprehensive Stroke & Cerebrovascular Center is dedicated to achieving the highest outcomes. We work continuously to improve the
care and treatment of our stroke patients. Our improvement plans include constant monitoring of compliance with stroke clinical practice guidelines
from the American Stroke Association. An example of an improvement plan is providing stroke education including personal risk factors for stroke
on discharge instructions. This ensures all stroke patients receive this important information before they are discharged.

What are we doing to improve:


We continue to have 100% compliance on all venous thromboembolism (VTE) core measures, except VTE‐1: VTE prophylaxis within 24 hours of arrival.
This measure assesses the number of patients who received VTE prophylaxis or have documentation why no VTE prophylaxis was given the day of or the
day after hospital admission or surgery. The MeasureVention report was developed by the Anticoagulation Steering Committee to provide a daily
assessment of all hospital inpatients of their VTE risk and prevention orders. The Nursing staff and physicians monitor this report to assure all inpatients
have the appropriate VTE prevention for their current health condition. MeasureVention reports are monitored for patients that are at moderate to high
risk and have no orders for mechanical or pharmacological prophylaxis; if there are any inconsistencies the physicians and nursing staff are contacted to
provide the appropriate VTE prevention. For patients that are moderate to high risk and only receiving mechanical prophylaxis—sequential compression
devices (SCDs), the inpatients are audited to assure they are receiving administration and documentation of SCDs.

What are we doing to improve:


UC Irvine Medical Center is committed to providing the safest and highest quality care possible to patients. Our improvement plans include
constant monitoring of compliance with evidence-based practice guidelines for perinatal care. UC Irvine Health does not perform deliveries
before 39 weeks gestation without indicating reason. UC Irvine Health also provides education for all community hospitals on the use and timing
of administration of antenatal steroids (betamethasone) to be given to all babies less than 34 weeks. This allows for improvement in lung
recruitment on high-risk babies. These processes sustain and help us improve upon our above-national-average performance.

UC Irvine Medical Center is committed to standard influenza vaccination practice guidelines to prevent influenza virus infection and its potentially
severe complications. Our current rate for immunization is higher than the national average, however we are striving for further improvement to
reach 100%. Phone calls are made daily by Quality and Patient Safety to nurses on hospital units reminding them to vaccinate patients before
discharge or to document patient refusal. Several improvements were also made to the nurse screening tools in the electronic medical records,
allowing for accurate assessment of vaccine candidacy. Our Occupational Health clinic continues to improve accessibility to flu vaccination for
employees.

safety. We are committed to the standard of the government’s Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) patient safety indicator guidelines
and evidence-based practices. Each patient safety indicator (PSI) case is thoroughly reviewed by different levels of the organization. Cases are
reviewed by a Quality and Patient Safety physician/ nurse team, and by the Critical Events Management Team in order to identify opportunities for
improvement. More specifically, all PSI 04 cases are reviewed by the Perioperative Committee and PSI 12 cases by the Anticoagulation Steering
Committee to further ensure there are no gaps in care.

What are we doing to improve:


Improving patient survival and reducing in-hospital mortality are at the core of UC Irvine Medical Center’s mission to provide the highest quality and
comprehensive healthcare to our patients. Every death at our hospital is reviewed to identify patient-safety issues, including system and process issues
that can be prevented or improved. Palliative care is always available to help improve the quality of life for our patients and their family members when
facing life-threatening conditions. A ratio of less than or equal to 1.0 is favorable and means that fewer patients died than expected based on the
performance of other teaching academic hospitals.

What are we doing to improve:


Reducing and preventing 30-day inpatient re-hospitalization are at the core of UC Irvine Medical Center’s mission to provide the highest quality and
comprehensive health-care to our patients. UC Irvine Health has implemented the Transitional Care Management (TCM) program to support quality care and
optimize resource utilization for selected high-risk patients for readmission as they transition across the care continuum. We also work closely with skilled nursing
facilities to prevent avoidable re-hospitalization. Through our Readmission Task Force, we have been able to use technology and data to identify the high-risk
patients for hospital readmission while they are still in the hospital for early intervention and prevention.
