Neurology is an area of specialisation for medical doctors and hospitals, but even within the field, doctors practice in a broad number of subspecialties from which patients who have particular ailments can choose. Neuromusculoskeletal medicine, otology, vascular neurology and paediatric neurosurgery are just a few areas in which doctors might concentrate their practices. The best hospitals put together teams to function effectively to give patients optimal care. Some hospitals do a better job than others.

Massachusetts General Hospital

Massachusetts General Hospital constantly strives to improve its performance in many areas, such as by reducing patient bloodstream infections contracted in the ICU and patient falls, and improving hygiene and error management. Quality of physicians as trained by Harvard University is a highlight of this hospital, but to look for a good neurology hospital, a patient should take other factors into consideration. A hospital's patient mortality and injury statistics, which are low at Massachusetts General Hospital, should also be considered. Level of care is imperative for nursing staff, with highly trained professionals at a small nurse to patient ratio being ideal--as it is at Mass General.
