Sharp Rees-Stealy Quality Measures for Testing Children With Throat Infections
What was measured?
What percentage of children, ages 2 to 18, who were diagnosed with pharyngitis (throat infection) and given an antibiotic medication, were tested for strep throat?
These results are based on patient records from the medical group or HMO.
Why is it important?
When your child is sick, you want to do everything you can to help. Making sure that your child gets the right treatment for his or her throat infection is the first step in helping them feel better. Antibiotics will only help your child's sore throat if it is due to an infection caused by bacteria. If it is caused by a virus, antibiotics will not help. Using antibiotics when they are not needed can make some bacteria become more resistant to the antibiotic. Infections caused by resistant bacteria are harder to treat and cure.
Sharp Rees-Stealy score: 95.05 percent
State median: 83.05 percent
