Schoolchildren aren't the only ones who receive report cards each quarter.

Medicare has Hospital Compare, a Web site where people can find and compare quality measures for patient care and satisfaction at hospitals across the nation.

The currently posted scores reflect patients treated between April 2007 and March 2008.

See Sunday's Register for a roundup of scores — and how hospital officials and staff use them — for Firelands Regional Medical Center, Fisher-Titus Medical Center, Bellevue Hospital, Magruder Hospital in Port Clinton and Memorial Hospital in Fremont .
