Hospital Medical Problems Reported Online

Comments Off

A post on The Krafty Librarian provides some useful medical information about Florida hospitals:

“For those who live in Florida…the web site, Florida Compare Care is available. It discloses each Florida hospital’s rate of medical problems in seven categories, including bedsores, hospital-based infections and post-operative complications. However, the web site does not allow for direct hospital-to-hospital comparisons.”

“For those of you in other states, similar data is also available form the federal government at the Department of Health and Human Services Hospital Compare Web site. ‘Hospital Compare has quality measures on how often hospitals provide some of the recommended care to get the best results for most patients.'”
