Another article in US News & World Report announced:
 
The first national print advertising campaign focusing on the quality of care in American hospitals was launched this week by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
 
In the ads, readers are invited to "Compare the Quality of Your Local Hospitals" and are provided with the following information:
  • Percentage of patients at each hospital who always received help when they requested it, as reported by patients.
  • Percentage of patients at each hospital who were given antibiotics one hour before surgery, as reported by hospitals.
  • The state average for each of these two measures.

Here's where you can find Hospital Compare.


Some people are like Slinkies... Not really good for anything, but they still bring a smile to your face when you push them down a flight of stairs.

I did too. Especially since both of our local hospitals did take part in the survey and their data is there. AND my preference of the two did consistenly better than the "other" religous order run hospital which gets all the catering and kowtowing from city government. GLOAT!
