Fewer hospitals in MI have 'A' grades for safety

"Our passion for patients allows us to create one of the state's safest hospital environments". In the 10th edition of the report, patient safety performance by hospitals in states varied widely.

The Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade assigns A, B, C, D and F grades to more than 2,600 US hospitals twice per year.

The Leapfrog Group, a nonprofit healthcare ratings organization, on Tuesday, Oct. 31, 2017, released new Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grades to general acute-care hospitals in the nation.

LeapFrog spokesperson Erica Mobley says the report is created to provide patients with information on how to protect themselves when visiting a hospital. "UMC scored better than average in a majority of categories identified".

Over 120 hospitals were graded in Pennsylvania and 38 were awarded an "A".

It is the fourth consecutive "A" rating for McDowell Hospital. "We are seeing in pockets of the country like Rhode Island, there seems to be a significant effort and achievement to bringing all hospitals to top levels of safety", she said.

Adventist HealthCare Shady Grove Medical Center: D "We don't believe our grade is a reflection of the care we give at Shady Grove".

Puerto Rico's governor: Cancel Whitefish contract
The contract states that "Prepa hereby represents and warrants that Fema has reviewed and approved of this Contract". During a news conference Thursday, Rosselló said he was expecting an audit into Whitefish's $300 million contract.

News4 reached out to every hospital on the list.

The report graded twenty-five hospitals in CT. A patient died at UMC this summer, and witnesses told The Washington Post he had been mistreated.

Several hospitals across in the greater Philadelphia area also received "A" grades. Two of those hospitals were in D.C., and others are located in California, Florida, Illinois, Maryland, Mississippi, New York and Tennessee.

Over 800 hospitals earned an "A" grade, with the highest percentages found in Rhode Island, Maine, Hawaii, Idaho and Virginia. The five states with the lowest percentage of A-grade hospitals are Washington, D.C., North Dakota, Delaware, Maryland and NY. Rhode Island had the most dramatic improvement, jumping from 50th in 2012 to No. 1 in the fall of 2017.

The Blue Ribbon Expert Panel selected 27 measures of publicly available hospital safety data, analyzed the data and determined the weight of each measure based on evidence, opportunity forimprovement and impact.

"Errors and infections in hospitals are the third leading cause of death in America, and people deserve to know which of their hospitals are best at preventing them", said Binder. "At the very least, everyone should get an A on patient safety".
