Agency for Health Care Administration Secretary Alan Levine unveiled a new Web site that lists a bevy of statistics for every health care facility in the state, including the mortality rate for high risk procedures and the percentage of patients who pick up an infection while they’re in the hospital.
Alan Levine says, “Medical errors and bad outcomes, death even, can happen even when the hospital and the doctors have done everything right. You can’t control sometimes for a bad outcome.”
The Web site also includes a list of average charges.
