Note: Because birth injuries are quite rare, this table includes three years of data.  Some birth injuries associated 
with this indicator might be minor or not preventable by hospital practitioners.
The definition of this indicator changed in late 2003.  Prior to October 2003, "head molding" might have been included 
in the indicator.  "Newborn head molding" is an abnormal head shape that occurs from pressure on the baby's head 
during delivery.  This is not a serious condition and the baby's head often returns to its normal shape in a few days. 
More than half of Utah hospitals in this table (23 out of 38 or 61%) had fewer than expected birth injuries compared to similar hospitals in the U.S.
Rating: 
***  Lower rate than expected (better) **    Same as expected *     Higher rate than expected
 
Observed Rate: percentage of newborns who experience an injury
Expected rate: percentage of babies who were expected to experience an injury at this hospital if it performed the same as other U.S. hospitals that delivered a similar ratio of males and female babies
