(KMOV)—The Illinois online hospital report card and consumer guide was brought up to speed this weekend with new cases involving patients contracting infections from surgeries. The report acts much like a school report card where Illinois hospitals were ranked based on patient recovery time and condition.

The public now can see precisely how many patients at each hospital suffered infections after common surgeries, check median charge and length of stays and number of patients for specific procedures.

The information aims to help hospitals monitor their infection control and improve their health care procedures.
