Helping Patients Understand Safety and Quality Data

 Patients deserve to know how hospitals are performing. At Johns Hopkins, we regularly report on key measures gathered at our hospitals, including hospital infections, patient satisfaction and hand hygiene. Dr. Peter Pronovost, director of the Armstrong Institute for Patient Safety and Quality, explains that by empowering the patient with safety and quality data, we can help inform their decision on where to receive health care.
