How Safe is the Hospital You Need?
Some hospitals apparently need to clean up their acts. The good news is that conscientious medical professionals looked into the matter. They're giving the American medical world a booster shot of motivation to improve medical care and cleanliness issues.
The Institute of Medicine published an innovative To Err is Human report in 1999. It explained some risks to patient safety in US hospitals. Various medical oversight institutions followed up that report by requiring American hospitals to submit annual patient safety reports. They're still collecting information for the public benefit and revising the reports accordingly.
Now you can learn what the experts know about the safety and efficiency of specific hospitals. See http://www.hospitalcompare.hhs.gov/
