How many pages is this assigment?

Locate an article that reports on the quality of healthcare services. The article must be from a mass media source, not an academic or healthcare journal. The purpose of this assignment is to review information that is reported to the general public in a news source that does not exclusively cover healthcare issues. Weekly magazines such as TimeNewsweekUS News and World ReportForbesMoneyConsumer Reports, or newspapers such as the Wall Street Journal or New York Times, are examples of appropriate choices. The article may give various examples of good or bad quality instead of covering just one episode of care. Your selected article must be a comprehensive review or assessment of some aspect of healthcare services.

  • What are the suggestions for improvement in quality in the article? 
  • What is your reaction to this article as a consumer of healthcare services? 
  • What is your reaction to this article as a provider of healthcare services? 
  • Is the article fair in its reporting and assessment of healthcare quality?
