Hospital Safety Scores are assigned to more than 2,500 hospitals across the nation twice annually.  Performance measures produce a single score representing a hospital’s overall performance in keeping patients safe from preventable harm and medical errors.

Hospital Compare is part of the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Hospital Quality Initiative. The intent is to help improve hospitals’ quality of care by distributing objective, easy to understand data on hospital performance, and quality information from consumer perspectives.

Nursing Home Compare allows consumers to compare information about nursing homes. It contains quality of care information on every Medicare and Medicaid-certified nursing home.

New ratings published in Consumer Reports magazine give consumers in the Greater Columbus region a rare window into how their doctors compare.  The ratings focus on how well doctors provide evidence-based care for patients with high blood pressure and diabetes, and how often doctors provide the right screening tests for colon cancer.
