Kaweah Delta earns an ‘A’ rating in patient safety
Visialia Times-Delta

Kaweah Delta has been given an “A,” the top grade possible for patient safety. The score is based on how well hospitals protect patients from accidents, errors, injuries and infections.

Specifically, across 28 national measures of safety, the Leapfrog Group, a nationally recognized health care rating agency, measured Kaweah Delta against 2,500 U.S. hospitals and found we were in the top-tier of those following safe patient care practices. Though we are quite proud of this accomplishment, we consider this only part of patient safety efforts.
