Hello, could I ask when collecting for this category, PHE include Valve + CABG? We don't routinely submit in this category so I was just checking as have a vague recollection that is what they expect. Seems odd to list patients twice in CABG and the above category.
Also has anyone got any advice on reducing infection rates in Valve surgery other than what we already do for CABG pts? Our rates are higher than we'd like for valve surgery but no common denominator so struggling to see what else we can influence. Any feedback gratefully received.
