News article collection, page with CMS inpatient ratings, and more

To best increase accountability and give the most information possible:

  • Collection of news articles making progress
  • New guidelines on news article submissions
  • Page with CMS inpatient facility ratings based on core quality indicators

News Articles

I have 15 more hospital news articles in a document to review, but for now, here is the running list of hospitals we’ve found news articles about allegations of abuse against patients, neglect, and insurance fraud on. Some new guidelines on what kinds of articles and reports we’ll take for that submissions feature are now up. They’re mostly about how recent articles need to be and article subject matter.

Page for Inpatient Core Quality Indicators

There’s a new page for inpatient core quality indicators and an explanation of what those are. There is a link to ratings from the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). A foreseeable upcoming feature is a downloadable dataset on TJC core quality indicators from a research study.

Other Updates

I currently am up to date on all reviews that have been received and also have updated the “view all hospital reviews” page. I fixed the “Facebook Group Policies” PDF link as I had put a broken link there by mistake and have added a sitemap under the “About and Site Usage.” There are new categories, “reviews” and “news articles,” available under the categories drop-down and under “View Reviews and News Articles.”
