SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Rankings of Utah hospitals based on patient satisfaction ratings can now be viewed online.
The rankings from the 2009 Hospital Consumer Satisfaction Report can be viewed at health.utah.gov.
The findings show that about 73 percent of respondents would recommend their hospital to family and friends, but some measures showed discrepancies of up to 50 percent among the 34 Utah hospitals included in the survey.
The survey used to compile the data on the website included 27 questions patients were asked about their hospital visit, on topics such nurse and doctor communication, responsiveness of hospital staff and cleanliness of the room.
