These reimbursement reductions come as part of a drive by the healthcare community, including the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), to increase patient safety and quality of care. There's nothing wrong with that -- we all should be held accountable. Hospitals across the country are working hard to attack the complex issues involved in care and to institute best practices to improve outcomes.
