Wednesday, March 05, 2014
With 230 bed Middlesex Hospital leading the state, Connecticut placed 7 hospitals in the #50 through #100 overall New England rankings.
"All of our hospitals review their HCAHPS results on many levels as soon as the data are available. From the bedside caregivers to the Board, everyone in each hospital is committed to improving the patient experience. Each survey gives the patient an opportunity for open communication, enabling hospitals to find solutions to better serve patients," said Mary Cooper, MD, Chief Quality Officer, Connecticut Hospital Association.
Cooper continued, "Hospitals have instituted a number of innovations to address concerns raised in HCAHPS surveys. These innovations are in the areas of medication management, providing culturally competent care, improving communication with patients, and enhancing responsiveness to patient concerns. In recent years, Connecticut hospitals implemented a major patient safety initiative, high reliability, and hospitals are adopting similar methodology to improve the patient experience."
