"None of our hospitals are flagging as an outlier for HSMR within Scotland," he said.
There is no positive measure of quality of inpatient care available in Canada (such as patient satisfaction), but negative events are recorded and can give an idea of the effort a hospital puts into treating its patients: A hospital will achieve better quality if it reduces its in-hospital mortality measured by hospital standardized mortality ratio (HSMR), its rate of nosocomial events (such as in-hospital sepsis), or the proportion of patients who have to be readmitted after being discharged (CIHI, 2016c).
As part of the review of the concerns raised, the HSMR value for each site and the trend was reviewed.

Sir Brian said statistics showed that for a decade four hospitals had Hospital Standardised Mortality Ratios (HSMR) - which gives a figure for whether death rates are higher or lower than would be normally expected - which were "continuously very high".
The annual Dr Foster Hospital Guide has identified Gateshead Health NHS Foundation Trust as having a higher than expected hospital standardised mortality ratio (HSMR) in the last year.
