Cardiovascular surgeons on the medical staff at Southeast Missouri Hospital, Girardeau, developed indicators, including indications, complications, and outcomes, for the monitoring and evaluation of coronary artery bypass grafts. When the number of sternal wound infections exceeded the threshold for evaluation, action was taken and the occurrence of such infections subsequently declined.
