JANESVILLE, Wis. -Most Wisconsin hospitals are unlikely to be penalized for high rates of patient infections, based on preliminary data released by the federal government and analyzed by Kaiser Health News.

The report shows 65 hospitals are subject to the penalties for high infection rates, complications and patient injuries.

But of those 65, only 26 had scores bad enough to be at the most serious risk of losing 1 percent of their Medicare payments from October through September 2015.

Scores are based on a two-year period, from the beginning of 2012 to the end of 2013.

The preliminary scores come from June 2012 to July 2013, which means final scores may be different in October.
