GOODING, Idaho (KMVT/KSVT) - The survey results for the cleanest patient rooms across the nation are in and one local hospital took the top spot.
According to Becker's Infection Control and Clinical Quality, the North Canyon Medical Center in Gooding came out on top based on the Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (HCAHPS) surveys collected over the past year.
Adult patients receive the survey to evaluate their hospital experience once they're discharged.
"We did receive a 96 percent. We wanna make sure that, you know, we protect our staff and our patients as well as well as the community," said Patty McClary, Director of Nursing.
The national average is 74 percent of patients who reported a clean patient room.
Hospitals in Iowa, Kentucky, and Maine rounded out the top five.
