Healthcare Finance: A new study from the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons found that hospital satisfaction scores for total hip replacement surgery can hinge on different points depending on gender. For women, responsiveness and clear communication from nurses and doctors dictate satisfaction. For men, it’s optimal pain management, the study found. Researchers examined survey results from 692 patients who had undergone total hip replacement surgery from November 2009 through January 2015, including 277 men and 414 women. Both groups had a mean age of 62 years old.
