Health Leaders Media

Consumer Reports has nearly doubled the number of hospitals that fall under the updated hospital safety ratings that the magazine first published last August. However, the expanded review that began with 1,159 hospitals last year and has grown to include 2,031 hospitals still shows low scores across five measures: readmissions, complications, communication, the overuse of CT scans, and infections. The data from federal and state governments cover different time ranges, depending on the specific measure.
