Grand View Health Receives ‘A’ Grade for Patient Safety
2016-05-04

        New Hospital Safety Scores, which assign A, B, C, D and F letter grades to hospitals nationwide and provide the most complete picture of patient safety in the U.S. health care system, were recently announced by The Leapfrog Group, a national patient safety watchdog. Grand View Health was one of 798 hospitals to receive an A, ranking among the safest hospitals in the United States.

        "To earn two consecutive 'A' grades for patient safety from The Leapfrog Group is something we are very proud of at Grand View Health," said Jean M. Keeler, JD, president and CEO, Grand View Health. "Our skilled clinicians and compassionate staff continue to keep patient safety at the forefront of their efforts to provide quality care close to home."

        "Avoidable deaths in hospitals should be the number one concern of our health care leaders. Hospitals that earn an 'A' from Leapfrog are leaders in saving lives, and we commend them and urge their continued vigilance," said Leah Binder, president and CEO of The Leapfrog Group.

        Developed under the guidance of Leapfrog's Blue Ribbon Expert Panel, the Hospital Safety Score uses 30 measures of publicly available hospital safety data to assign A, B, C, D and F grades to more than 2,500 U.S. hospitals twice per year. It is calculated by top patient safety experts, peer-reviewed, fully transparent and free to the public. For the first time, the Hospital Safety Score includes five measures of patient-reported experience with the hospital as well as two of the most common infections, C.diff and MRSA.

        To see Grand View Health's full score, and to access consumer-friendly tips for patients and loved ones visiting the hospital, visitwww.hospitalsafetyscore.org or follow The Hospital Safety Score on Twitter or Facebook.
