Still Trying to Make Those Hospital Accreditation Reports Public

Nope, a little sunshine would not help promote higher quality acute care hospitals. Not at all.  Those hospital inspection reports performed by private accrediting agencies are "not set in any context to promote public understanding" according to the American Hospital Association.
