Explore Hospital Quality Ratings and Data. You can get a “snapshot” of quality of Vermont hospitals by looking at the following aspects of healthcare:
Deaths and Readmissions:
- How each hospital’s performance on the readmission and death (mortality) measures compares to the national rate.
- How recently-discharged patients responded to a national survey about their hospital experience. For example, how well did a hospital’s doctors and nurses communicate with patients and manage their pain.
- How often and quickly each hospital gives recommended treatments for certain conditions like heart attack, heart failure, and pneumonia. This section also explores how facilities follow best practices to prevent surgical complications for common procedures.
This section provides information on infections that occur while the patient is in the hospital. Many healthcare-associated infections can be prevented when the hospitals use CDC-Recommended Infection Control Steps.
- Central Line-Associated Bloodstream Infection
- Infection Following Abdominal Hysterectomy Surgery
- Infection Following Hip Replacement Surgery
- Infection Following Knee Replacement Surgery
Nursing Care Hours refers to the number of hours of nursing care provided on a hospital unit, compared to the number of patients on that unit during a 24-hour period. A higher number may indicate that a hospital provides a higher level of patient care.
