Analysis of Predicted Vs. Actual Surgical Site Infection Counts in California Hospitals for 2014

Source: State of California - Office of Statewide Health Planning and Development (OSHPD) (CSV).
  • The comparison reveals several operative procedures with lower or higher infection counts relative to predictions, suggesting areas for potential investigation or commendation for effective infection control.
  • Some facilities exhibited notably divergent actual infection numbers from predicted counts, indicating potential over or underperformance in managing infections.
  • The dataset includes a wide range of procedure types, highlighting the diversity of surgical interventions with corresponding infection risks.
  • While the scatter plot visualization is informative, it may mask underlying factors contributing to the observed discrepancies, such as hospital resources, patient demographics, or procedural complexity.
  • The analysis should be interpreted with caution, given it only encompasses data from 2014 and may not reflect current infection control practices or outcomes in California hospitals.
