Frequently Asked Questions
My hospital deals with complicated surgeries that other hospitals don't have to deal with. It's not fair to compare
a hospital that does
complicated surgeries to one that only does day surgery.
In fact, different hospitals see patients with different characteristics including risk factors such as age, gender and whether patients have coexisting conditions that might influence how they fare in hospitals. That's why each hospital's reviews specify a specialty and procedure, which hospitals can choose when creating their profile. Hospital Nation does not compare hospitals, but instead promotes the dissemination of medical provider reviews. This Site should in no way be construed as offering medical advice. Our stated mission is to bring transparency to the health-care marketplace. Your decisions about treatment, providers and anything else belong strictly to you.
I see my hospital is already in Hospital Nation’s database, how to get access to it ?
Hospital Nation have a pre-loaded Database integrated, if the provider you repesent is already on it, please contact us to get a complete access to it and update it’s profile for better indexing and better usability of Hospital Nations's features.
How Hospital Nation deals with negative comments ?
To protect medical providers who receive negative comments, the website tracks and uses software that detects similarities in writing patterns to identify postings that are not genuine. We have a team evaluating daily, taking into account whether the review is motivated by malice or things other than an honest review of the medical providers.
Hospitals are very large, complex organizations. To rate anything on the basis of five stars is incomplete at best and
potentially misleading at worst ?
The five point rating only assess the quality of general care and medical treatment. At Hospital Nation we always encourage the patient to review hospitals on key performance metrics like quality indicators and satisfaction ratings based on experience. We encourage all to tell their story so that patients who seek the same treatment will have all the information they need to make an informed decision.
Don't you think that letting people determine what rating their hospitals should have is unfair and irresponsible ?
The patient ratings tool included on the hospital profile pages does not affect the overall rating awarded by the national accreditation institution. It is there as a supplement, so that patients can compare their own experience to the results hospitals report themselves. Research in the U.K. has shown that online patient ratings such as these accurately reflect health care outcomes at hospitals.
