Hospitals: Reports and Statistics

The Division of Quality Assurance (DQA) regularly investigates hospitals. These are called surveys. Surveys ensure hospitals follow all state and federal rules.

Surveys are performed:

  • When complaints are filed against a hospital.
  • When self-reported complaints are filed.
  • When a hospital needs to renew a license or certification.

When surveys show that a hospital isn’t following all rules, they are issued a citation. Citations are written on a document called statements of deficiency. Citations explain what rule was broken.


The reports below summarize the results of the surveys conducted by DQA.
