FHA: Quality Initiatives Working

The Florida Hospital Association has released a study that says a number of quality initiatives are saving lives and money at hospitals around the state. Readmissions and surgical complications have dropped almost 15 percent over five years, according to a news release. The report also notes double-digit decreases in blood stream infections and urinary tract infections.

Originally founded in December 2006 as an independent grassroots publication dedicated to coverage of health issues in Florida, Health News Florida was acquired by WUSF Public Media in September 2012.
