ProPublica, a nonprofit investigative news organization, has created a web tool for consumers to dig into the quality of care at individual dialysis clinics. There are 269 such facilities in Georgia, and the tool gives you information such as mortality rates, infection rates, and hospitalizations. The data were collected by contractors for the federal Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.

It may take you a little while to become familiar with the ProPublica site, but the information is very useful if you’re choosing a dialysis clinic for yourself or a loved one. Here’s a link.
