AMERICA'S ANTIBIOTIC CRISIS

Is your hospital as safe as it claims?

Consumer Reports wants your help tracking down hospitals that may not accurately report deadly infections

Published: July 29, 2015 06:00 AM

Hospitals must report certain infections that occur in their facilities to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention if they want to avoid financial penalties. Two of the most serious of those infections are C. diff (clostridium difficile) and MRSA (methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus). Consumer Reports uses that data, the best available, for our hospital Ratings. But there is no comprehensive system for auditing the data to guarantee that those reports are accurate. And research suggests that hospitals fail to report a shockingly high percentage of infections.

For example, a Harvard study that compared medical records with patient interviews found that patients reported about twice as many infections and other complications as the hospitals had documented. And a report from the Department of Health and Human Services’ Office of Inspector General found that hospitals reported less than 25 percent of infections in Medicare patients.

Read the second installment of our special investigation into America's antibiotic crisis, "How Your Hospital Can Make You Sick." And use our hospital Ratings to see how hospitals in your area compare in preventing infections and other measures of performance and safety.

Underreporting may stem in part from sloppy record keeping. “Some hospitals, especially smaller ones, haven’t put systems in place to collect and report infection data in a standardized way,” says Eric Schneider, M.D., an author of the Harvard study. But in other cases, it may be more deliberate. “For example, a hospital may claim that a patient checked in with the bug, which doesn’t count against the hospital, when in fact she developed it as an inpatient.”

“There’s reason to be skeptical about the accuracy of infection data,” says Lisa McGiffert, director of the Consumer Reports Safe Patient Project. “That’s why we want reporting by patients and their families to be included.”

How you can help

To get our top rating against MRSA or C. diff, a hospital has to report zero infections. “It’s possible, and it’s a standard we want to hold all hospitals to,” McGiffert says. “But we know that some hospitals may not tell the whole truth.”

To help us check, click on the name of a state in the chart below to see a list of all of the hospitals in that state that reported zero MRSA or C. diff infections between October 2013 and September 2014 (the most recent data available when we recently updated our hospital Ratings).

If you were treated in one of those hospitals in that time frame and you developed a MRSA or C. diff infection as a patient, tell us your story by adding a comment below.  (ConsumerReports.org subscribers can click on a hospital's name for more information about that facility, including detailed Ratings of infection rates and other measures of hospital safety and peformance.)
