How Safe is Your Hospital?
The Leapfrog Group has released the Spring 2023 hospital safety grades. The safety grade assigns a letter grade to nearly 3,000 U.S. general hospitals based on more than 30 measures of patient safety. The rating is solely focused on a hospital's ability to protect patients from preventable errors, accidents, injuries and infections. How does your preferred hospital rate? Here's how to find out. Click here for the Hospital Safety Grade web site. Once there, enter your zip code and a search range in miles from your zip code. You should see all of your local hospitals listed with their associated safety grade. Fact: Only ONE hospital in Broward County, Florida (where I happen to live) was given an A grade! Check the website to see which one.
