Patient Safety & Quality Information:
Hartford Hospital is proud to be one among the highest-quality hospitals in the United States. Top-quality healthcare and patient safety are central to everything we do at Hartford Hospital.

Upon arriving at Hartford Hospital, you may have questions and concerns. There are several things you can do to help us address those needs and keep you safe.
Be an active decision maker about your care. Let caregivers know about your concerns and goals so that everyone can work to meet your needs. Some medical terms can be hard to understand, so ask for terms to be explained. Also, ask questions before and after treatments you have received and the care you have been given to make sure you stay informed.
When it is time to leave the hospital, it is important that you understand your discharge plan to ensure your continued safety and comfort
Hartford Hospital established its Ethics Committee in 1982, one of the first hospitals in the state to do so.
Hartford Hospital is dedicated to providing you with up-to-date information on our performance on key process of care standards as set by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) and The Joint Commission (our accrediting body). We also provide data for a number of key measures that go beyond those required by CMS.
