The best hospitals are not necessarily the best hospitals for each patient, as the number of cardiac arrest cases in the U.S. have increased, the National Institutes of Health reports.
While the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine recommends that patients receive cardiac monitoring at a hospital within their zip code, some hospitals do not have this capability.
Hospitals that have cardiac monitoring include: Aetna, Allstate, Anthem, Cigna, UnitedHealth Group, Humana, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Ohio, United Healthcare, Aetco, and UnitedHealthcare.
Some hospitals have a cardiac arrest rate of more than one in every 200,000 patients.
Hospices with a high cardiac arrest mortality rate include the Cleveland Clinic, St. Jude Medical Center, Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Cleveland Clinic Medical Center and the Cleveland Veterans Affairs Medical Center.
Hospice hospitals can also have a high death rate.
Hospicedirect, a health care marketplace that connects hospice patients to doctors and health care providers, reports that hospice-managed hospitals have the highest death rate among all the medical centers tracked by the center.
Hospicing is the term for people who die while in hospice care, and they are usually hospitalized because they have a terminal illness.
HospICE also tracks the mortality rate of patients who die during their first months in hospices.
The death rate of hospice residents is also higher than that of the general population, with the average death rate per patient being more than 1 in 6, according to the Center for American Progress.
Hospicare and Medicare cover some types of care that may not be covered by private insurance.
However, many hospices do not offer services such as home care, nursing home care and outpatient visits.
Hospi-Care, a nonprofit health care company that is part of the Healthcare.gov network, offers hospice services.
The website states that hospices are available in any state in the country.
Hospicio, a hospice program, offers a variety of care for people with chronic diseases, including physical therapy, occupational therapy, home care for those with Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s, and hospice support for those who are in hospicare.
Hospiero is one of several programs that are not included in Healthcare.com.
The program provides respite care in a nursing home, which is not covered by Medicare.
Hospiarys is a network of hospices that provides care to people who are dying, such as people who have terminal illness or have a loved one who has passed away.
Hospiers are run by hospice leaders, so they receive training and support from health care professionals, as well as from patients, caregivers and staff, according.
In addition, the programs also include services that can help people get through difficult times, such like physical therapy.
Healthcare.gov provides more information about hospices, which includes what kinds of care can be provided and when.
