Medscape writes: Patients who receive care at major teaching hospitals have a lower risk of dying within 30 days of admission compared with patients treated at nonteaching hospitals or minor teaching hospitals, a study suggests. The findings are reported in an article published online May 23 in JAMA. To gain insight into the cost/quality balance, the researchers compared mortality rates by hospital teaching status across approximately 21 million Medicare beneficiaries aged 65 years or older from 2012 to 2014.
