People who suffer a life-threatening alteration
in heart rhythms are more likely to survive if they are in a casino or
airport than if they are in a hospital, researchers have reported.

already knew that more than half of those who suffer such attacks in
airports and casinos survive. But a new study in hospitals shows that
only a third of victims there survive, primarily because patients do
not receive life-saving defibrillation within the recommended two

Here is one summary, here are others. Note of course the results do not adjust for the lower quality of patient in the hospitals.
