Higher percentage indicates better performance.
The percentage of first-time, isolated CABG patients who are given statins on the day of discharge remains steady over time.
Why is this indicator important?
Statins are used in patients following first-time, isolated CABG to reduce the risk of further cardiac problems, though not all patients can tolerate them.
The aim is for all eligible patients (patients for whom these drugs are suitable) to receive them on the day of discharge.
How do we measure this indicator?
The percentage of all patients admitted for first-time, isolated CABG given statins on the day of discharge.
