Little improvement in Leapfrog’s latest round of hospital-safety grades
Modern Healthcare

The Leapfrog Group has released its latest round of safety scores, and nearly three quarters of hospitals maintained the same letter grade they received in November, when the organization issued its last update.

Launched nearly a year ago, in June 2012, the program rates hospitals with a patient-safety letter grade—A, B, C, D or F—based on publicly available data, drawing from the CMS‘ Hospital Compare, Leapfrog Group’s annual hospital survey and the American Hospital Association’s annual survey.
