Encompass HealthCare's curator insight, February 10, 2014 12:43 PM

So about 1 in every 20 patients gets a hospital-acquired infection. What if you knew your mechanic screwed up every 20th car he touched? Would you still take your car there? Probably not.


Is it such a radical idea to publicize the number of HAI's from every hospital? And if they were publicized, how fast do you think hospital management would respond with better and more frequent education on proper hygiene and infection control? 


Pretty darn fast, I'd imagine.


Any hospitals game for putting their money where their infections are?
