Right to learn hospital infection rates survives bid to stop it in legislature

The group hoped to curtail the measure, trying to push through legislation. The Hospital Measures Advisory Council recommended in a 2006 law that hospitals disclose information about common infections, and whether facilities are vigilant about practices that reduce infection risk.
