Medical Malpractice Lawyer -- Hospital Malpractice
As an example, I asked for all hospitals within 10 miles of the 15201 zip code. 10 different hospitals fit that description. Of those 10 hospitals, I compared West Penn, UPMC Presbyterian and Allegheny General. According to the statistics, the 30-day mortality rate for heart attack patients at West Penn is 15.7%; for AGH it is 16.4%; and for UPMC Presby it is 16.2%. The national average is 16.1%.
Thus, by using the Hospital Compare website, I was able to learn that the 30-day mortality rate for heart attack patients is slightly above the national average at AGH and Presby; and slightly below the national average at West Penn.
