The new mortality rate compares how many deaths occured in a hospital and 30 days after discharge from that hospital with how many deaths would be expected. The expected deaths is calculated based on age, sex, admission method (ie. emergency or elective) diagnosis and co-morbidities of patients. It doesn't take into account other things, such a levels of deprivation in the population, if a patient has been admitted for palliative care or if they have undergone a procedure whilst in hospital so still very controversial.
Hope that helps,
Apologies, the link was slightly wrong. It has been corrected and should now work.
