Patient satidfaction surveys from hospital stays in Canada are sorely lacking
Thursday, August 1, 2013

 

 
Canadian hospitals rarely make patient satisfaction surveys available to the general public, according to Sholmon Glouberman in an article published in the online version of CBC News Canada. While websites like "RateMDs.com, DrScore.com, and Vitals.com in the United States" have rated doctors and hospitals, this is sorely lacking in Canada. The article points out that current surveys are discriminately sent to patients after they are discharged from the hospital, without a collective effort to send out surveys to all or most patients. This effort fails to truly convey or "capture the grit of patient experiences" according to Glouberman.
