Good idea if you can get the report. In many hospitals you can get anything except a fast cure.

I would think that you could go to dept of health and senior services when reporting does begin. While this is a good idea, I would like to see reports about wrong medication or treatment rates, malpractice suits, and wonder if their is a report card for hospitals like schools? I will have to do a little digging.

There is a site out there were you can view the state inspection results of nursing homes, however I can't recall the exact name. I will tell you this. It ain't pretty! It will give you everything the state found wrong in a nursing home. From experience as a nurse, since corporations took them over, they will always suffer from lack of help, and neglect of patients due largely to lack of help. Theft is another big problem in nursing homes. I always told family members upon bringing in their loved ones, to take out all valuables. Period! It, unfortunately is not a perfect world. If it were, seniors would receive the good care they deserve and I, as well as many others, would still consider nursing a joyous experience. Senior living is deplorable in the Kansas City area. I know there are a few good homes out there if you have the big money to pay.

Oops, I guess I got alittle off topic there! I do agree that hospitals need to have a report card that people can access. We are the consumers and if their administrators can make the big bucks from me and my insurance, I would like the piece of mind knowing how well my hospitals rate on infection control, medication errors and quality care.
