How to Find the Safest Hospital

For those of you who live in urban areas where there is more than one hospital to choose from, here is a list of what to look for when you engage in comparison "shopping." This is especially important if you move into a new area. You need to choose your hospital at least as carefully as you choose your schools and place of worship. They are not all the same.

Acceptable Hospital

Dangerous Hospital

Balanced budget

Cash-flow deficit

Good labor relations

Poor labor relations

All corridors clear

Equipment in corridors

Free of foul odors

Odor of human excrement coming from rooms

Care plan conferences include patient or family

Care plan conferences exclude patient or family

Operating room staffed twenty-four hours/day

Operating room closed at night with on-call staff

Nursing recruitment and retention program

No formal nursing recruitment and retention program

Staffing prescheduled with adequate numbers

Supervisors scramble desperately to find nurses

Zero tolerance for patient trauma

Some trauma seen as "unavoidable"

Patient satisfaction survey forms provided

No expression of interest in patient satisfaction

For those of you who live in less populated areas where there is only one hospital within a reasonable distance, you should make your inquiry to know your hospital's shortcomings so you can protect yourself and your family. In the succeeding chapters, you will learn how to do just that.
