Hospitals receive ‘A’ Grades for Patient Safety

Leapfrog Thank You AdHSHS Sacred Heart and St. Joseph’s hospitals recently earned “A” grades from the Leapfrog Group for the hospitals’ commitment to keeping patients safe and meeting the highest safety standards in the U.S. The Leapfrog Group is a national nonprofit health care ratings organization that assigns letter grades of A, B, C, D and F to hospitals nationwide based on performance in preventing medical errors, infections and other harms.

The grades demonstrate a hospitals’ commitment to transparency and quality improvement, and are considered the “gold standard” when it comes to safety comparisons among hospitals. The Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade uses 27 measures of publicly available hospital safety data to assign grades to more than 2,600 U.S. hospitals twice per year. It is calculated by top patient safety experts, peer reviewed, fully transparent and free to the public.
