The information and procedures set forth in this web site are subject to constant change and therefore should serve only as a foundation for further investigation and study of the matters covered by the Web site. All information and procedures contained in this Web site should be carefully reviewed and should serve only as a guide for use in specific situations.
It is important to note that the Hospital Consumer Reports are updated every two weeks and placed on hold approximately two weeks before being published. The holding of the data for two weeks is required to insure that confidential survey information is not made public before it is legally allowed. The data contained in the Hospital Consumer Reports is therefore approximately one month old.
In addition to being aware of the dates and the age of the data, it is important to understand that the data for every hospital is at some point manually entered into a database which leaves the potential for human error. If an error was made by the ISDH, it will be corrected in the database and the Web page as soon as practicable. The hospitals and the public are encouraged to notify the ISDH of any discrepancies found in the data presented in order to improve our overall data quality. Comments and corrections can be e-mailed to ISDH at Providers@isdh.state.in.us.
The ISDH hereby disclaims any and all responsibility or liability that may be asserted or claimed arising from or claimed to have arisen from reliance upon the procedures and information or utilization of the information set forth in this Web site, or for any data inaccuracies contained in this Web site.
