Quality Measures for Colorectal Surgery

The Colorectal Cancer Program at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center continually measures the quality of care given to patients having colon and rectal surgery. 

The quality measures monitored include:

  • The volume of colorectal surgical procedures done.
  • The length of a patient's stay in the hospital.
  • The number of minimally invasive (laparoscopic) procedures done.
  • The percentage of colorectal surgeries that result in a patient needing a colostomy, an opening from abdomen to the outside of the body to allow the contents of the colon to empty into a bag.

In addition, a number of other quality of care measures are reported on a hospital-wide basis. These include measures of:

Patient satisfaction and perceptions of Cedars-Sinai Medical Center are also measured. This information is available by clicking the links below:
