Hospital Rating Site Launched, RateYourHospitalStay.com
Date:3/3/2009

RateYourHospitalStay.com is a free site where consumers can both rate a hospital or look up hospitals to see how others have rated them.

Pasadena, CA (PRWEB) March 3, 2009 -- RateYourHospitalStay.com, http://www.rateyourhospitalstay.com, is a newly launched website that provides opinions and ratings of hospitals across the U.S. The site also allows people who have recently undergone a hospital stay to rate their experiences and share their opinions. The site is based on the premise that by providing an online mechanism to unite the opinions of those recently hospitalized with those who may be considering hospitalization, the information can help people make informed decisions about which health care facilities best fits their needs.

"Our mission with RateYourHospitalStay.com is to shine a light on unbiased assessments of patient care for other consumers who are often ill-informed of their choices," says Founder of RateYourHospitalStay.com Joseph Reed. "Through better, more complete and dynamic information, consumers will be able to separate the good hospitals from the bad."

Reed says most of the information about hospitals and healthcare facilities on the web today is provided by companies who are owned or controlled by those in the healthcare industry or groups who benefit from keeping information limited. RateYourHospitalStay.com is completely independent, dedicated to providing the best possible unbiased information to consumers. The site is not funded or supported by any hospital or healthcare corporation. Its support comes solely from the advertising sponsors on the site.

RateYourHospitalStay.com is also committed to being a free service. All that is required is registering in order to complete surveys and post comments. Registration is easy and simply requires having a valid email address. RateYourHospitalStay.com does not sell or give any private information to outside sources and is a member of the Ratings and Reviews Professional Association.

RateYourHospitalStay.com surveys include questions on:

  • Admissions Process
  • Hospital Facilities
  • Food and Nutrition
  • Nursing Care
  • Visitor Experience
  • Discharge Process

The rating system is a five-star system with:
  • 1 Star = Unacceptable
  • 2 Stars = Poor
  • 3 Stars = Average
  • 4 Stars = Good
  • 5 Stars = Excellent

All ratings for each hospital facility are combined and averaged to arrive at a score.

Currently there are over 4,500 U.S. hospitals listed on the RateYourHospitalStay.com website. If consumers don't find a particular hospital listed, it can easily be added to the database by contacting RateYourHospitalStay.com via the "Contact Us" page with the name, city and state of the hospital they wish to include. Within 72 hours it will be added to the site. People can also search by zip code to view information on all the hospitals in a particular area.

RateYourHospitalStay.com encourages people to include personal comments, both positive and negative, as long as they relate to a hospital experience. The survey is specific to hospital facilities and the treatment received in and by the hospital staff. The information not only helps individuals in choosing a hospital or facility that best fits their needs, but additionally, by making the information public, hospitals may see the need to reevaluate their patient care services.
