Texas Patient Safety Check

Key:  Better than average  Average  Worse than average

The Dallas Morning News examined how 110 large, general hospitals in Texas — those with 200 beds or more — performed on a variety of patient safety indicators developed by the federal government.

Each hospital listing has a name, an icon indicating performance on a composite safety index, and its rank statewide on that index. Select the hospital name to see details on the composite index and 15 other patient-safety measures.

Outcomes are based on hospital data reported to the state in 2010, the most recent year publicly available. Hospitals are considered above or below average if their score and the overall score were outside each other's margin of error.

For more information, see our Introduction, FAQ, comments from hospitals and localized graphic . For previous results, please visit The News' orginal Hospital Safety Database published in 2010.
