The Colorado Hospital Report Card
Colorado passed House Bill 06-120 requiring that quality measures for all hospitals in the state with over 100 beds be posted on the internet. That has been done since 2007. One of the quality measures for which hospital comparisons are available is pressure ulcers. For 2009, four hospitals are designated below average. Thay are Exempla Lutheran Medical Center, Exempla Saint Joseph Hospital, Longmont United Hospital, and Rio Grande Hospital. We will contact each of those hospitals in an attempt to make them aware of the NDF Prevention Protocol, and to urge then to adopt the protocol.
