Quality and Safety at Spaulding Hospital Cambridge
Spaulding Hospital Cambridge provides care for patients with serious medical conditions that require intense specialized treatment for several weeks or longer. Our interdisciplinary medical team is comprised of highly skilled physicians, nurses, therapists and other clinicians who work together to coordinate and provide specific individual treatments for each patient.
Satisfaction with your experience at Spaulding Hospital Cambridge is important to us. In 2017, 86% of patients would “definitely” recommend SHC.
Discharge to Community
In addition to providing “excellence in care” we foster an atmosphere that allows and encourages each individual to “Find their Strength”. In that partnership, the goal of discharge is to work closely with our patients and families to transition home, to a lower setting of care, or to return to acute care for planned ongoing treatment. SHC ranked “better than the national rate” based on Medicare Enrollment and Claims data for October, 2015-September, 2017.
Another indicator of quality care is whether patients require readmission to an acute care hospital within 30 days of discharge from SHC. The most recent data published by Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) for January, 2014-December, 2015 shows that did “better than the national rate.”
