    Ohsu Hospital And Clinics Stories

    Ohsu Hospital And Clinics: "Underwent a surgery at OHSU and contracted an infection there. Because of the infection the second surgery was performed and most powerful antibiotics prescribed. However, the infection is not mentioned anywhere on my record. The rationale for the second surgery and antibiotic treatment is merely omitted. This is because the number of infections contracted during a surgery is one of the characteristics on which most of the hospital's ratings are dependent. This is how OHSU manipulates its ratings.
