Mismatched blood types

This measure tracks the serious reaction that can occur if patients are given blood that doesn't match their own blood types. Hospitals follow careful procedures to prevent giving patients the wrong blood types, such as labeling blood products and verifying a patient's blood type. Average or lower rates of mismatched blood types may be a sign of that the hospital's health care professionals are carefully following practices to prevent its occurrence.
