What's most important to you when you get health care services?

  • Getting care that is best for your condition?
  • Getting care when you need it?
  • Getting care from skilled & knowledgeable professionals?
  • Getting care that does not harm you?

44% of those responding to MBGH's informal Facebook poll chose "getting care that is best for my condition". 20% chose "getting care from skilled & knowledgeable professionals".

As you may have guessed, all four of these choices are components of getting quality care. But, it is interesting how we prioritize them when we get our own care. These four aspects of quality are presented as part of MBGH's Employee Communication Campaign: Getting Quality Care.

Polls are very "democratic" on Facebook, or at least they are when you forget to mark the box indicating you DON'T want people to add other possible responses. So, given we have a very engaged following, two additional responses were added:

22% chose the added response of "That I can afford to pay for it" and 11% chose the added response of "I just want to stay healthy".

I love these additions. In truth, if you cannot afford to pay for care you often don't even go to get care, so getting quality care is rather moot at that point. On the other end of the spectrum, if you are healthy, you don't need to get care, so getting quality care is moot at that point too.

 We indeed have a smart following on Facebook! Please "like" us on Facebook and join in on the conversation!!
