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.
