    Voted no- It's not that I don't think my hospital isn't the very best but for two reasons:
    1) Family members of staff seem to have the most bizzare complications. Perhaps it's just because we are paying so much attention to them but there are so many examples.

    2) If God forbid, something bad happens, I don't want to have to interact with the surgeon, nurses, other staff that may have contributed to my loved ones suffering. It's human nature to try to assign blame- and I don't know if I could get over it if I felt someone goofed (even a little) and it resulted in a major problem.
