N.J. moves towards bill to post hospital-infection data

New Jersey lawmakers are moving forward with a bill that would require New Jersey hospitals to make infection rates public and available online to the public. The bill (S147) requires hospitals to report information about patient infections to Department of Health & Human Services. This data would be available to consumers to faciliate comparisons online as the results would be posted on the health department Web site.
