Gordon Hospital achieved straight ‘A’s’ for the seventh consecutive year in The Leapfrog Group’s Fall 2018 Hospital Safety Grade, released on Nov. 8. With the Hospital Safety Grades, Leapfrog assigns an A, B, C, D or F grade to hospitals across the country based on how safe they are for patients.
Developed under the guidance of a National Expert Panel, the Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade uses 28 measures of publicly available hospital safety data to assign the grades to more than 2,600 U.S. hospitals twice per year. The Hospital Safety Grade’s methodology is peer-reviewed and fully transparent, and the results are free to the public.
“Gordon Hospital’s continued success in achieving an A rating is evidence that the organization places an emphasis on protecting patients from preventable medical errors, injuries and infections. We are inspired by Gordon Hospital’s leadership on patient safety,” said Leah Binder, president and CEO of The Leapfrog Group.
