Report Indicates Nevada Hospital Death Rates Similar to National Average

A recent report on the death rates in Northern Nevada hospitals found they are consistent with national figures according to the United States Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.  The report compared heart attack, heart failure and pneumonia death rates between the U.S. average and hospitals in Northern Nevada.

The heart attack death rate for 2006-2007 was 16.4 percent and all seven hospitals in the area were within one percentage point of the national average.  Similarly, heart failure death rates were within one and half percent of national averages.  Pneumonia cases in Northern Nevada hospitals were in the range of 10% and 14.4%, compared to a national average of 11.3%.

Although the report showed that regional hospitals were within the national averages, medical and hospital malpractice is still a common occurrence in hospitals in Nevada.  It is reported that the number three cause of death in the United States is medical doctor or hospital error.
