|Dataset Full Name||Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (CAHPS) - Child Hospital Survey|
|Dataset Acronym||Child HCAHPS|
Child HCAHPS surveys the parent or legal guardian of children aged ≤17 years old to assess their experiences of their hospital inpatient care. The purpose of the Child HCAHPS is to provide parent/guardian feedback that can be used for institutional quality projects and for rating the quality of inpatient facilities. Child HCAHPS covers most of the topics addressed by the Adult version of the Hospital Survey (Adult HCAHPS) but also includes topics that are particularly relevant to pediatric care.
Note: Child HCAHPS data is not currently available.
