In the August 2019 issue of The Journal of Trauma and Acute Care Surgery, in the article by Becher et al., “Evaluating mortality outlier hospitals to improve the quality of care in emergency general surgery”, one cell in Table 2 was in violation of the State Data Use Agreement (DUA). The first row corresponding to “Rural location, n (%)” under “Good (n= 28)” should have been listed as ≤2.

This has been updated in the online files.

The author apologizes for the error.
