Background: APACHE IV scoring system is one of the most useful scoring systems for evaluating the quality of health care services in ICU. The aim of this study was to evaluate the quality of health care services in ICU wards of Valiasr and Amiralmomenin Hospitals of Arak. Materials and Methods: This cross-sectional study was conducted on 100 patients admitted to ICU wards in Valiasr and Amiralmomenin Hospitals of Arak. First, the predicted mortality and length of stay (LOS) in ICU were calculated by APACHE IV scoring system. Then the real mortality and the real length of stay in ICU were recorded. Data were analyzed by SPSS software version 11.5 and t-test. Results: Real mortality in men and women were 57.2% and 61.9%, respectively. The real length of stay in men and women were 11.58 and 11.62 days, respectively. Predicted mortality calculated by APACHE IV in men was 23.72% while it was 24.1% in women. Predicted LOS by APACHE IV in men was 15.02 days while it was 16.64 days in women. There was a significant difference between real mortality and predicted mortality (P = 0.001). Conclusion: The findings of this study indicate that the quality of health care services in ICU wards of Valiasr and Amiralmomenin Hospitals of Arak are far from international standards.
