Joint Commission Core Measures of Quality

Heart attack, heart failure, pneumonia, and stroke are conditions that frequently bring patients into a hospital for treatment.   Thousands of patients also come to Cedars-Sinai each for surgery. The Joint Commission has recommended guidelines that when followed have been shown to help patients recover more quickly with fewer complications or lasting effects. The Joint Commission also recommends that patients be vaccinated against pneumonia and influenza to prevent these illnesses after discharge. These guidelines are based on evidence that specific practices lead to better outcomes for patients.

Cedars-Sinai's performance compared to other medical centers and hospitals around the nation and the state is highlighted in this section of the web site.  For more detailed information about specific measures, click on the links below.
