HOSPITAL REPORT TO BE PUBLISHED
A report is due to be published today outlining the death rates for various conditions at Irish hospitals.
The document entitled ‘Health Care Quality Indicators in the Irish Health System’ marks the first time such breakdowns have been provided for individual facilities.
It was reported at the weekend that the report will show the death rate amongst stroke patients can be up to 4 times higher in some hospitals than others.
Individual hospitals aren’t expected to be identified in the report.
