Hospital Quality and Safety

Many factors affect a hospital’s performance on quality measures. Read more...  

Note:  The data include patients with do not resuscitate (DNR) orders and palliative care patients (terminally ill patients requesting comfort care only). Hospitals that treat a larger share of these patients may have higher-than-expected mortality rates but still may be providing good quality care.
