Safest Hospital

Posted On September 8, 2015 / By iLawyer / Uncategorized

You can find the safest hospital by asking this one question.

You’ve probably heard about the overcrowding of classrooms. You probably haven’t heard much about how overworked nurses are.

If you think back to the last time you or a loved one were injured and in a hospital, you probably can remember the nurse. That’s because nurses are the most visible element of any care team. Your most direct access point to health care? It’s a nurse.

That’s why the ratio of nurses to patients can be a really great way to evaluate the performance of a hospital. If you’re looking for medical care with a lot of “touch,” you’ll want to look for a hospital with a low patient-nurse ratio. A ratio of 4:1 is considered low-risk.
