The Truth about Hospital Ratings & Recognitions
- Hospital ratings based solely on a set of selected complications are incomplete and conjecture as they lack time-tested, evidence-based metrics like 30-day Hospital Readmissions, and Timeliness of Care.
- Hospital ratings based only on a hospital’s reputation are unscientific and subjective as they lack time-tested, evidence-based metrics like Hospital-Acquired Infections and 30-day Hospital Deaths rates.
- 100SafeCareHospitals.com is a consumer-oriented service that can help consumers make informed decisions about their health care. The Star Ratings include quality measures for the routine care an individual receives when being treated for heart attacks and pneumonia to quality measures that focus on hospital-acquired infections and hospital-acquired complications. The time-tested, evidence-based metrics of 100SafeCareHospitals.com are collectively called Recognizing Healthcare Excellence®.
