SickKids patient-positive hospital, shows OHA website

Staff continue to make SickKids one of the province's best when it comes to how satisfied patients are with the care they receive. On a new website called myhospitalcare.ca, launched April 16 by the Ontario Hospital Association, SickKids scored above average on patient satisfaction indicators and even earned a top rating as a 'high performing' hospital for satisfaction among acute care patients.

Myhospitalcare.ca is a patient-friendly site that presents existing public information about every hospital in Ontario and explains, in plain language, what these indicators mean in terms of clinical outcomes, care, patient satisfaction and patient safety indicators. The site is not meant as a tool to facilitate or encourage "comparison shopping" by patients, but rather as a means to educate patients on the information that is available to them and how they can use it to become active participants in their own health care. It includes measurements selected from the Hospital Report Research Collaborative, the Canadian Institute for Health Information and the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care.

To learn more about clinical outcomes, care, patient satisfaction and patient safety at SickKids and at other Ontario hospitals, visit myhospitalcare.ca.
