Why Not The Best? Comparative Reports on Central Line-Associated Bloodstream Infections
Users of WhyNotTheBest.org can now search for and compare data for nearly 1,000 hospitals on the incidence of central line–associated bloodstream infections (CLABSIs)—one of the most lethal hospital-acquired complications. The data show wide variation in CLABSI incidence, in spite of strong evidence on how to prevent them. The updated data is made possible through a partnership among The Commonwealth Fund, The Leapfrog Group, and Consumers Union.

Medicine is to help not kill without knowledge. The hospitals know wrong, but bottom $$ line is only health they desire. Transparency now.

I’m very unhappy with current expensive health care system. The rewards system to providers should be reformed to improve health care. Sweeping reforms and more disclosures are needed.

Hospitals should be rated and compared on a uniform rating standard. Their rating should be available to the public for comparison. Their “joint commission” inspection results should be published as well.
