As we discussed in our last post, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services has just released its annual list of U.S. hospitals that will be penalized for having too many hospital-acquired illnesses and injuries occur.

Feds penalize 41 New Mexico hospitals over patient care - part 1

Since 2014, hospitals across the U.S. have been evaluated on the basis of how many hospital-acquired conditions occur in their facilities. Each hospital is given a score based on patient safety indicators, the prevalence of infections acquired in the hospitals, and the presence of infection-resistant MRSA (Staphylococcus aureus) and Clostridium difficile.
