A hospital-acquired condition (HAC) is where a patient suffers from a health problem due to being in the hospital, for example, an infection following surgery. To see how your local hospital stacks up to others or the national average when it comes to these so-called HACs, use the dropdown menu below to select a condition, zoom into your area to see individual hospitals, and select a placemark to see how each rates.
