star ratings. If you are currently employed at a hospital, select your workplace for one of the
locations. Review information under all tabs.

Select one outcome quality measure focused on a change in health status (i.e. 30-day death
rates), one process quality measure focused on the steps of a process (i.e. Patients who
reported that staff “always” explained about medicines before giving them) and one patient
satisfaction measure ( i.e. Patients who reported YES, they would definitely recommend the
hospital).

knowledge of local needs, concerns and preferences select ONE of these measures that you
believe would be the most important the local community.
