Compare safety, outcomes, infections, readmissions, and efficiency ratings of hospitals
LEXINGTON, KY, USA, January 9, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — For the seventh consecutive year, The SafeCare Group® has published its 100SafeCareHospitals.com ratings of 100 hospitals excelling in Outcomes of Care, Safety of Care, Infections of Care, Efficiency of Care, and Unplanned Visits of Care.
“The top 50 hospitals represent our top one percent of US hospitals,” said Yisrael M. Safeek, MD, MBA, Chairman and CEO. “Just two percent of US hospitals earn the prestigious 100 SafeCare Hospitals distinction. 100 SafeCare Hospitals is truly disruptive to the healthcare status quo as hospitals that performed poorly on these evidence-based metrics receive a financial penalty from the Centers of Medicare and Medicaid Services.”
“Like other service providers, hospitals are advertising how great they are,” said Dr. Safeek. “Yet, each year an estimated 440,000 patients die from medical errors. Millions more are affected from shabby care, bad treatments, and poor services from hospitals. Also, since the mid-1980s healthcare cost began spiraling out of control from 8 percent of GDP to 18 percent in 2018. The spiraling cost can be attributed to redundant labs, preventable drug reactions, avoidable readmissions, preventable hospital infections, and untimely inpatient mortality interventions.”
