Texas: Potentially Preventable Complications Reports

Published by the Texas Department of State Health Services

Potentially Preventable Complications (PPCs) are harmful events or negative outcomes that develop after hospital admission and may result from processes involved in care and treatment rather than from natural progression of the underlying illness. Therefore, these complications are potentially preventable. Ideally, all PPCs should be preventable with the provision of quality care. However, in practice, varying levels of PPCs are observed. As such, PPCs are an important measure for quantifying the quality of health care.
