No matter the reason for a hospital visit, your safety should be your number one concern. That's why we're excited to share updated Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grades for Fall 2018. How well is your hospital protecting patients from errors, injuries, and infections?
“The Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grades provide our community with information to help make informed decisions on where to seek care,” said Gaye Fortner, President & CEO, HealthCare 21 Business Coalition. “On behalf of local employers, purchasers and patients, HC21 is committed to making our community the safest one in America. We work throughout the year to encourage and promote transparency in hospital reporting. Together with Leapfrog, we remain committed to obtaining this data voluntarily from hospitals willing to be transparent. To keep our regions informed, we annually publish Leapfrog hospital survey results, and twice annually publish and promote Hospital Safety Grades.”
Congratulations to HC21 member, UTMC, on another "A" rating. UTMC has maintained an "A" rating since Fall 2015 (scores are released twice annually; Spring and Fall).
