The Leapfrog Group is a national organization committed to improving healthcare quality and safety for patients. The Safety Grade assigns an A, B, C, D, or F grade to hospitals across the country based on their performance in preventing medical errors, infections and other harms among patients in their care.
“Hospitals that earn an A Hospital Safety Grade deserve to be recognized for their impressive efforts in preventing medical harm and errors,” said Leah Binder, Leapfrog president.
Developed under the guidance of a National Expert Panel, the Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade uses 28 measures of publicly available hospital safety data to assign grades to more than 2,600 U.S. hospitals twice per year.
