For the first time, Canadians across the country will have an online tool to help them figure out which hospitals have stronger track records for treatment after major surgery, heart attack or stroke.
A new interactive website produced by the Canadian Institute of Health Information will allow patients to compare how their local hospitals are performing on different measures of patient care. These include in-hospital death rates after major surgery, acute heart attack and stroke; re-admissions following hip or knee replacement; and even the incidence of bed sores, falls and other “nursing-sensitive adverse events.”
