Doing a little homework before you choose a hospital can do more than give you peace of mind. Choosing a hospital that scores well on quality can make it easier — and safer — for a patient to recover from a serious event, like having heart surgery, or a more routine one, like having a baby.
- See how often a hospital gives the right treatments for certain conditions — like heart attacks, heart failure, and pneumonia — or procedures — like preventing surgical infections.
- View the results of care or treatment for certain conditions or procedures.
- See how much Medicare paid hospitals for certain conditions and procedures.
