To the Editor On behalf of our coauthors, we write to report errors that occurred in the survey study in our article, “Resuscitation Practices Associated With Survival After In-Hospital Cardiac Arrest: A Nationwide Survey,”1 published online April 6, 2016, and in the May 2016 issue of JAMA Cardiology. Unfortunately, we recently became aware of administrative errors in categorizing several hospitals’ risk-standardized survival rate for in-hospital cardiac arrest while conducting additional analyses.
