Share on Facebook
Here is a list of the top 41 non-specialty, acute-care hospitals with the highest percentage of patients who reported that their pain was "always" well controlled in the Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems survey, according to data from CMS' Hospital Compare database.


Note: The data is based on the HCAHPS survey, which allows patients to rate line items relating to their patient care experience. This particular metric covers the "percent of patients who reported that their pain was 'always' well controlled" from January 2011 through December 2011. Some hospitals were excluded from this list for a variety of reasons, including but not limited to having fewer than 100 patients complete the HCAHPS survey. Surgical and specialty hospitals are not included on the list.
