Dissertation Revision 1 Changes - 03/29/2012
Hundreds of individuals have read the full text of the dissertation available online at catholichospitals.org.
A few individuals have sent me questions about some issues they discovered in the document.
Upon investigating these issues, I have revised the document to include these minor changes.
I truly appreciate receiving feedback from these individuals and welcome any other comments from readers.
- 1. St. James Mercy Hospital was reported as being in the diocese of New York. Instead it is in the diocese of Rochester. As a result, the diocese of New York has no hospitals with patient records reporting V25.2 codes. Changes were made on p. 71, Table 16, and p. 74, Table 19.
- 2. St. Joseph's Hospital Health Center in Syracuse is independently owned and is not affiliated with Catholic Health Services of Long Island. None of the hospitals owned by Catholic Health Services of Long Island reported V25.2 codes. Changes were made on p. 71, Table 16, and p. 73, Table 18.
- 3. Holy Family Hospital in Spokane was listed twice in the table for hospitals in the state of Washington. This was a formatting error and did not affect any of the total numbers. The change was made on p. 82, Table 23.
