Leapfrog Issues Hospital Safety Report Cards

By

A new "Hospital Safety Score" issued by The Leapfrog Group, a non-profit employer-sponsored organization enables anyone with internet access to check out which hospitals are the least, and which ones the most, likely to cause avoidable patient harm. "Though some hospitals surprised us, a good many did not, with highly regarded hospitals earning a safety score consistent with their larger reputation:  like Mayo, Virginia Mason, Brigham and Women’s, and NYU—all (received) As," Binder says.
