HCF has collated information from the
www.myhospitals.gov.au website to assist you to compare safety and quality
indicators for public and private hospitals. The indicators are Hand Hygiene and Staphylococcus
Aureus Bacteraemia (SAB, or more commonly known as Golden Staph).
You can select up to 10 hospitals at a time using this tool. In some instances a
hospital may not be able to be compared as either no data has been reported, or
in recognition of MyHospital’s assessment that a hospital has not performed enough
admissions to enable a valid comparison to other hospitals.
All data has been sourced from www.myhospitals.gov.au
website which is maintained by the National Health Performance Authority (NHPA).
At HCF we aim to provide MORE information to members so that they are better informed
when they make health care decisions for themselves and their families.
HCF has done its utmost to ensure that all information on this site is up to date
and correct. HCF takes no responsibility in regard to the accuracy of the information,
or how the information is utilised or interpreted. This website feature is updated
monthly, and as such users should refer to the
www.myhospitals.gov.au website to ensure access to the latest available
information. At present this tool provides comparative information for all public
hospitals and a range of private hospitals. HCF is encouraging private hospitals
to participate in the MyHospitals website and to provide consent to participate
in future editions of this comparative tool for the benefit of healthcare consumers.
