Death rate above expected at 11 of 17 district generals

The Risk Adjusted Mortality Index (RAMI) is calculated as the ratio of the actual number of deaths in a hospital, compared to the expected number of deaths.

The baseline is set at 100 - so anything above that means a higher than expected death rate, and anything below it means a lower than expected death rate.

Here are the figures for Wales' district general hospitals, for October 2011 to September 2012:

  • University Hospital of Wales, Cardiff - 128
  • Llandough, Penarth - 86
  • Prince Charles, Merthyr Tydfil - 102
