Inpatient Satisfaction (HCAHPS)
In the 4th Quarter of 2013, we ranked, as a hospital, in the 96th percentile for Overall Rating with a rating of 85.5%. This is down slightly from the previous quarter’s rating of 88.9% and the 98th percentile. The Overall Rating is determined by the percentage of patients who rate the hospital either a “9” or a “10” with “10” being the ‘Best Hospital’ and “0” being the ‘Worst Hospital’.
Please keep in mind that although the ranking for inpatient areas is attributed to the unit the patient was discharged from, the patient’s experience throughout the continuum of care effects the ratings.
The following are the rankings for all units compared to the previous quarter. Congratulations to Interventional and 4 Lesser for a consistently high rank.
