Please notice that the hospitals with the highest cesearn birth rates don't always have the highest corresponding rate of complicated deliveries.

Click here for Excel spreadsheet of above data.

 

Methodology: For total births, tallied DRG categories: 765 - cesarean with complications, 766 – cesarean rate without complication, 767 – vaginal delivery sterilization or D&C or other OR procedures, 774 - vaginal delivery with complicating conditions, 775 – vaginal delivery without complicating conditions. The CS total was category 765 + 766. Rate was calculated as CS Total / Total Births. For the rate of complicated deliveries, tallied DRG codes 765 + 774 divided by total births. Calculations done by Kim James, CD(DONA), CD(PALS), ICCE, LCCE, BDT(DONA). kim@kimjames.net
