As is the case with The Sentara Heart Hospital, a 112-bed facility on the campus of Sentara Norfolk General Hospital in Norfolk, Va. Sentara is also on the leading edge of a burgeoning hospital safety and quality movement.

The patients name is asked an up- teemed number of times before being wheeled into the operation theatre. This demonstrated the hospital's safety focus, helping to prevent such medical errors as performing the wrong procedure (or performing it on the wrong side of the body) or giving a medication to the wrong patient. In a facility that faithfully follows guidelines issued by the Joint Commission, the hospital accrediting body, the number of people who go through the name/birth date/surgery drill during your stay will seem comical at best and annoying at worst.

Many a times people believe that a higher price usually signals better quality. But it is not true Paying more doesn't always yield better care. Earlier, patients could not compare what they and their insurers paid hospitals against how well those hospitals performed.

Recently Pennsylvania issued its latest report showing how much surgeons and hospitals earned on each surgery. The report showed how much the insurer or medicare paid the hospital.
