Thanks for this, I looked up my hospital from my 2010 stay for hip replaement and it had a ***, my 3 nights were horrible and I expressed my opinions in exit review. This same hospital in the 80's when I had a hysterectomy was primo vs now. Price has gone up and quality has gone down.

I have to say the study is interesting but anyone who takes them too seriously without doing more investigating isn't do themselves any favors. Like all similar studies, the best today could be the worst next week and visa versa. I know, comparing the 2 hospitals we are likely to use in our region: we have had very positive and very negative experiences with both.

There are so many studies and constant tests today and we get it all from the media and wwwnet and so it never ends. I'm old enough to know the early life of reading the paper for some info and not knowing much at all. Today, it's almost overkill. Tests, research, tests, research etc etc
