Women’s Choice Award® Research Reveals Overwhelming Concern about Patient Safety, but Majority Uniformed
Date:3/9/2017

A February 2017 survey of over 1,000 women conducted by the Women’s Choice Award revealed that 92% of women are concerned about hospital-acquired infections, yet only 23% consider themselves “very confident” in their local hospitals’ patient safety performance. The research also showed that three-quarters of women are unaware of their local hospitals’ infection and complication incidence rates.

During Patient Safety Week, March 12-18, 2017, the Women’s Choice Award is educating women who make 80% of health care decisions through its 2017 list of America’s Best Hospitals for Patient Safety. The 451 award recipients represent the top 9% of hospitals that have met the highest standards for patient safety in the U.S.

The methodology used to select America’s Best Hospitals for Patient Safety is unique in that it evaluates complication and infection incidence rates and Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (HCAHPS) survey results in conjunction with primary research about women’s healthcare preferences. It is the only award recognizing excellence in patient safety based on robust criteria that consider patient satisfaction and clinical excellence.

To receive the award, hospitals must also use an Inpatient Safe Surgery Checklist to assess effective communication and safe practices during three perioperative periods: prior to administration of anesthesia; prior to skin incision; and prior to the patient leaving the operating room or procedural area.

“The recipients of the 2017 America’s Best Hospitals for Patient Safety award have led the country by implementing safe practices that have ultimately saved lives,” said Delia Passi, founder and CEO of the Women’s Choice Award. “We have done the homework to give women the confidence of knowing that they are putting themselves—and their family members—in safe hands.”
