Divided into four regional volumes separately including information on the Eastern, Southern, Central, and Western United States, this reference directory reports on how 4.383 hospitals measure up when caring for certain specific conditions. The second edition adds coverage of pregnancy care and surgical infection prevention to the first edition's focus on heart attacks, heart failure, and pneumonia. Gathering its data from a Federal study (Hospital Care) in which short-term acute care and critical access hospitals voluntarily reported on quality measures in order to receive an incentive payment established by law in 2003, the report assesses hospitals ratings on 24 quality measures (the first edition only included 17) and compares them to state and national averages and to other "best practices" hospitals. Hospital profiles collectively include 20,700 key contact names. Each volume includes a state-by-state statistical summary and each state chapter includes state rankings. Also included are two new appendixes, a 30-day mortality data chart and a glossary of terms. Annotation ©2007 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
