Riverview Hospital must be reopened to provide the beds and housing that community facilities lack for those with mental illnesses. When Riverview reopens, patients will have access to the treatment they urgently need. Intensive care in secure wards at Riverview for patients that are chronically mentally ill is absolutely necessary. Additionally, the BC government must reopen Riverview Hospital
I compared Medstar Good Samarian Hospital, GBMC and Medstar Franklin Square Hospitals (FSH) for my comparison. I chose these three because they are near my home and I would likely be taken to one of them in an emergency. I was most surprised by the percentages under the readmission and death rates tab. This category included patients who were previously admitted to the hospital for treatment of medical problems and later experienced an issue that caused them to be readmitted. For COPD, heart attack, heart failure, pneumonia, and hip/knee surgery, all three of the hospitals met the national average. Under the stroke category, FSH was worse than the national average in the number of deaths that resulted from this complication.
