Read “How Statistics Can Help Save Failing Hearts” on p. 410 in your book. It mentions a very interesting website ,https://www.medicare.gov/hospitalcompare/search.html? , which allows people to compare the results seen at different hospitals across things such as patient experience and timely and effective care. Visit the website and compare the hospitals in your local area. What statistics stand out to you? Do you believe that these statistics should/could play a role in patient care?
