    People should do some research of their own on Healthgrades prior to giving HCA/Mission’s self-serving press release any credence. Healthgrade ratings are seriously flawed and subject to manipulation – something which HCA/Mission is adept at doing.

    Among many other criticisms, it should be noted that Healthgrades is itself a for profit enterprise that has been widely criticized by more independent entities for inaccurate health care provider information, modified and falsified reviews, poor validation of reviews submitted, faulty data analysis, a rating system which lends itself to selective “seeding” of positive reviews while providing an opportunity to weed out negative reviews, and for coaching providers on how to improve their scores.

    HCA/Mission selectively identifies patients and sends out staff to ask patients to complete satisfaction surveys prior to their even being discharged. I have experienced this myself as a Mission patient and had a staff person come to my room, and ask me a series of questions about my satisfaction – including questions about nursing care while the nurse was in the room with us. I did not get to complete the form myself, and the questions were framed in a leading manner. How objective and honest is a patient going to be when they are being asked questions regarding their level of satisfaction with their care, by the people who are providing that care, while one is still under their care? Then, even if a negative review is submitted, providers can also work to have negative reviews removed or modified.

    This is a joke, right? A bad joke. That, and it’s as misleading as it gets …right on par for HCA.
