Quality reports




By introducing this report in 2011, ACQUA Klinik was entering new territory. Ever since, interested parties have been able to view the results of all our operations. The report also includes all documented irregularities and complications as well as resulting risk categories.

When is the likelihood of a successful operation particularly high?

If the success index is high, then the probability that the results of the operation will be good also increases. Please note that this probability also depends on the type of illness or disorder. Sometimes surgery is only the key to drug therapy. This is something the data do not take into account.

What does ‘risk of surgery’ actually mean?

Regardless of success, various irregular events may occur during an operation. In this respect, the Performance Report distinguishes between irregular incidents (no influence on the patient), irregular events (temporary disadvantages for the patient, e.g. secondary bleeding) and accidents (lasting disadvantages for the patient). Nowadays, the risks of such events are very low, and the likelihood of an ‘accident’ is virtually zero.

How can I quickly gauge the risk-benefit ratio of a surgical procedure?

Look at the Success/Risk Index (0-100). The higher this value, the more favourable the relationship between chances of success on the one hand and potential risks on the other. But don’t forget: You cannot choose which operation you need. By their very nature, some procedures are more complex and involve a greater degree of difficulty. However, we can do everything in our power to make them as safe as possible.

How do I read the Performance Report?

The Performance Report lists all procedures carried out at ACQUA Klinik in alphabetical order. Each procedure has a success index and a risk index, which are identified three days (POD), three weeks (POW) and three months (POM) after the respective procedure. The efficiency rating at the end shows the relationship between success and risk.
