Can you tell me about costs, outcome rates, infection risks, etc. At various hospitals?

Right to know: For specific infections, this information is now posted on state department of health websites. You also can ask the hospital directly and if it is a surgical procedure or a procedure that is high risk for infections you can ask the doctor that is caring for you to share their stats. If they are unwilling to do so, you may want to consider an alternative provider.
