Government ads to show consumers how hospitals rate

AP/Yahoo News, May 21, 2008

The federal government is spending nearly $1.9 million on newspaper ads around the country that disclose hospital satisfaction rates. The full-page ads will show how patients rated more than 2,500 hospitals nationwide and feature two questions: The percentage of patients who always got help when they needed it, and the percentage of patients who got antibiotics one hour before surgery. The latter question reflects the interest in infections acquired at hospitals.
