Sparrow Ranked Poor by Consumers Report

Half of all patients in intensive care units around the world have infections, and more than 70 percent are being given antibiotics -- a trend that could help more drug-resistant superbugs emerge, researchers reported on Tuesday.

Sparrow Hospital shows up right near the bottom in a new Consumers Report list ranking positive outcomes of surgeries performed at hospitals. The scores are based on Medicare patients from a couple of years ago who had complications following surgery or died after surgical procedures.  Sparrow was rated as poor. Sparrow Hospital officials say the data used by the magazine was flawed.  McLaren Greater Lansing was ranked as average.
