Northeastern Vermont Regional Hospital invites the public to review and comment on the 2012 Hospital Report Card at a public meeting on Monday September 24, 6:00 p.m. at the NVRH Business Center 126.
All Vermont hospitals publish annual hospital community reports, called hospital report cards, containing information about quality, hospital infection rates and prevention measures, patient safety, nurse staffing levels, financial health, costs for services, and patient satisfaction scores.
This information is meant to educate healthcare consumers about hospital quality and costs to help them make better decisions when choosing a hospital. “Vermont hospitals perform very well on national quality standards,” said NVRH CEO Paul Bengtson.
The NVRH Hospital Report Card can be found on the hospital website, www.nvrh.org. For more information about the public meeting, call Laural Ruggles at 748-7590.
